Love Letters to the Church artwork for podcastBeginning with an outline of the practical behaviour expected from Christians, Fr Robbie moves on to look at St Paul’s teaching on marriage. His words are familiar: ‘Give way to one another in obedience to Christ… husbands love your wives as Christ loved the Church and sacrificed himself for her… wives submit to your husbands…children, obey your parents…’  However, beyond the marriage bond between husband and wife is the imagery of St John in the Book of the Apocalypse of the Church as the Bride of Christ prepared for the Marriage Feast of the Lamb.

Love Letters to the Church artwork for podcastIn a well-known passage, St Paul exhorts all Christians to unity: ‘Do all you can to preserve the unity of Spirit by the peace that binds you together. There is one Body, one Spirit, just as you were all called into one and the same Hope… There is one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism and one God who is Father of all, over all, through all, and within all.’ Eph 4: 3-6.  Fr Robbie further expounds this key doctrine in the theology of St Paul, who had such care for the new churches he had founded and who longed and prayed that they may remain united in Christ, come what may.

St Paul, acutely conscious of his own terrible misunderstanding of Jesus before his conversion, speaks with passion of the change wrought by Christ in those who come to believe in Him.  You who were once so far apart from us have been brought very close, by the blood of Christ, for he is the peace between us…
