Reading from the Gospel, Friday August 14 (click here)
Liturgical Day: Friday August 14
Gospel (Mt 19, 3-12): At that time, some Pharisees approached Jesus who, to test him, they said, "Can one divorce his wife for any reason?". He replied: "Have you not read that the Creator from the beginning made them male and female, and said, 'For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one one flesh? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together no man put asunder. "
They told him, 'Then why did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce and send her away? ". He said to them, "Moses, considering the hardness of your heart permitted you to divorce your wives; but at the beginning it was not so. But I tell you that whoever divorces his wife-not for fornication and marries another commits adultery. "
Disciples said to him: "If such is the condition of a man with his wife not to marry". But He said, "Not everyone can accept this saying, but those to whom it is given. For there are eunuchs who were born so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves so for the kingdom of heaven. Who can understand, you understand. "
