June 10.  While they prepared for their weekly meeting the young adults shared some of their thoughts on the story of Tobit and Anna, Tobias and Sarah and the archangel Raphael. “What I liked best was how human the whole situation was. An old couple arguing, a young man being led into an arranged marriage….” “and how God was present to that family through all this.” “I hope that when I find the right man, we will be able to pray together too.  I wonder how many of our parents pray before they have sex.”  Did the group laugh with embarrassment or amazement at that comment, or what do you think?  

Reflect, share, act. Scripture:. When you and your daughter-in-law Sarah prayed I brought a reminder of your prayer before the Holy One, and when you buried the dead I was likewise present with you.  I am Raphael, one of the seven holy angels who present the prayers of the saints and enter into the presence of the glory of the Lord.  Write in a book everything that has happened to you.” Tobit 12. Pope Francis:  There is a truly marvellous design in the Sacrament of Matrimony and it unfolds in the simplicity and frailty of the human condition. When the husband prays for his wife and the wife prays for her husband that bond becomes strong, one praying for the other. General Audience.
