"It is not good for man to be alone"

I don't know about you, but I'm loving the Genesis readings we've been hearing the past few days at Mass. Today's is it we learn how God, the Creator of all, created marriage when he created woman.

Adam's reaction to God's gift of Eve is delightful:

“This one, at last, is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
this one shall be called ‘woman,’
for out of “her man’ this one has been taken.”
