“I now say to you, whoever divorces his wife (lewd conduct is a separate case) and marries another commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.” –Matthew 19:9

Because Jesus is God:

His death on the cross has saved all people from their sins (see Ti 2:14).
He has risen from the dead and will raise us from the dead (see Rm 1:4).
He will come again to take us with Him (Jn 14:3).
He has superseded the Old Testament and has forbidden divorce (Mt 19:7-8ff).
He gives those celibate for God’s kingdom the power to live on earth as the angels live in heaven (Lk 20:34-36; Mt 19:12).
He can live in us and make it possible for us to live in Him (see Jn 6:56).
He can change bread and wine into His Body and Blood, and then command us to receive His Body and Blood (Mt 26:26-28).
We must totally give our lives to Him, live for Him rather than ourselves (2 Cor 5:15), and worship Him.
We should risk our lives to be Jesus’ witnesses (Acts 1:8).
We begin to realize that God is One and is Trinity, that is, three Persons in one God.
We are awed to live in the mystery of Jesus’ divinity.
PRAYER: Prayer: Jesus, “my Lord and my God!” (Jn 20:28)
PROMISE: Promise: “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever.” –Ps 136:1
PRAISE: Praise: When Alice entered a Catholic church for the first time, she was overwhelmed by the presence of God. Soon she converted to the Faith.
