Scripture for the day is Proverbs 2:16-17

You will be saved from the loose woman,
    from the adulteress with her smooth words,
17 who forsakes the partner of her youth
    and forgets her sacred covenant

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, out of your divine friendship within the Trinity you created the world. You made us friends of Jesus and you changed us through spiritual friendship in the church. Let Christian marriages be known for this – that the spouses are not just lovers and partners but the greatest of friends. Amen.
