Our readings this week soar. They describe our creation, who we are as stewards of God’s creation, our ranking compared to the angels, and the high Christology of Hebrews which describe Jesus, the most perfect human ever. And then our view comes crashing back down to painful reality as the Pharisees ask Jesus about divorce. What happens when all the beauty and love that God intends for marriage ends in painful places? Actually, not just in marriage, our lives encounter painful places where the mess we make of ourselves impacts the people around us. In our Gospel, Jesus points to God’s original plan and to the consequences and solution to our failure to love.
