Mark 10, the teaching on Marriage, and the blessing of the little children.
What was last Sundays homily?
Father N. told a funny story about a man who was looking for the expiry date on his marriage certificate - couldn’t find it, of course. Then, made an analogy about salad dressing - man and woman have to mix like oil and vinegar - sometimes it’s hard to get them to stay mixed so you have to shake things up quite frequently, but something wonderful and new happens when they do mix in the right way.
He also spoke at length about the difficulty and necessity of commitment and fidelity in marriage, often making reference to the reading from Genesis about the creation of Woman.
What was the last episode of you favorite TV show about?
CSI:NY - It was about a guy who was referencing Greek mythology in all these murders he was doing - he was angry because he thought his brother had been wrongly accused and mistakenly convicted of a crime.
Memory tips: connect it to something that is real to you. (Ask: How does this apply to my own life? If this story were about me, which person in the story is me? What would it feel like to be that person?)
Repeat the lesson/story to someone else shortly after hearing it.
Use visual imagery, either in your imagination when retelling the story/lesson to yourself, or actually make a drawing about it.
