19 July: For this world and eternity.

Marriage is for this world, 
but the love and unity between us 
is a participation in God's own love 
and is therefore eternal. 
One day I too will be called to the fuller knowledge of that love 
in our Father's house."

Ruth Reardon.

Ruth Reardon who dies recently aged 92, was an English Catholic married to Martin, an Anglican priest. They founded the Association of Interchurch Families with her husband Martin in 1960’s. They helped make interchurch marriages acceptable to the English Catholic bishops and to the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity in Rome.

Walking together has long been a mark of interchurch marriages, often leading to friendships between fellow parishioners of each spouse. Perhaps they can teach us a lot about synodality?
