Bishop Sabino while reflecting on the readings of the day called on the couple to be imitators of God to have a peaceful and a happy family.

We can also learn from the Holy Trinity being as one, the family must also be one. Each playing their roles to the best of their ability,
in the family if that happens, there will be peace, there will be happiness in the family. The icon of family life is the Holy Family of Nazareth.

perfect love, you are living like the Trinity amongst us, you are living like Christ with the church.
St.Pauls also helps the married couple to relate well by referring to the husband as head of the family. We all have roles and these do not make us any less , being God, the Father, the Son and the Spirit does not make one less. Because they are one. The husband has a role to be head of the family , just as Christ also is the head of the Church, it doesn't make one less, instead it provides strength. The mother does not become any less, think of Mother Mary, the greatest of all the saints. The way we respect her is not like for any other saint. St.Paul continues to say , husbands should love their wifes as themselves. If the husband is to love his wife as his own body means the two are one. ", Said the Bishop.
