Hail, Holy Matrimony!

“If Americans can be divorced for ‘incompatibility of temper,’ I cannot conceive why they are not all divorced. I have known many happy marriages, but never a compatible one. The whole aim of marriage is to fight through and survive the instant when incompatibility becomes unquestionable. For a man and a woman, as such, are incompatible.” ~G.K. Chesterton (b. 1874- d. 1936), from What’s Wrong with the World

This sounds quite accurate.

Fight through (GKC), married couples!

Healthy cultures are built on healthy Catholic marriages.

Lying on his bed of death, he thought little of his office life,

the ledgers,

the scales.


His eyes fixed on the faces before him:

      his family. 

They were there, 


all was well. 

Hail, Holy Matrimony!

May you have a good day.
