27th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 4 Oct 2015

From the Dean’s desk…

Today’s Gospel reading [Mark 10:2-16] can give rise to many different emotions and feelings – some of them uncomfortable.  It speaks to us about the issue and presence of divorce within our society and lives.  It begins with a question directed to Jesus by the religious leaders, asking if it is lawful for a man to divorce his wife – a query raised more as a test against Jesus than as a means of receiving understanding.

For Clay, greatness came from his having an unbeatable record in boxing, one that was very difficult to surpass.
