I spotted this a couple months ago but someone beat me to it.
So, guess what Gospel will be read in the Ordinary Form for the beginning of the Synod – which will be discussion, inter alia, marriage, and Communion for the divorced and civilly remarried.
A buddy – The Great Roman – just texted to me:
And in the EF the XIX Dominica post Pentecosten speaks of the last judgment as a wedding, in the umpteenth biblical analogy between marriage and the relationship between God and our souls, while the proper for St Francis has “jugum meum enim suave”, which reminds us of the ancient etymology of conjugium from jugum – jungo, conveying the image of being united by and under the same yoke. And to the Synod Fathers I recommend meditating the Gradual: “os instinc meditabitur sapientia et lingua eius loquetur iudicium. Lex Dei eius in corde (remember sklerokardia?) et non supplantabuntur gressus eius”
