The Church cannot change Her teaching.
The Deacon gave the homily, which he introduced as a letter from the Archbishop - obviously in defense of marriage. No copies were made available*. If I understood correctly, the Archbishop instructed all the priests and deacons of the Archdiocese to read the letter at all the Masses this weekend. If I come across the text I will post it.
It was very good, based entirely on the readings for the Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time. How it works out with the EF cycle, I dunno.
Essentially the scripture says it all:
"If it does not please you to serve the Lord, decide today whom you will serve..." - Joshua 24
"Wives should be subordinate to their husbands... husbands love your wives... For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh..." - Ephesians 5
"Many of Jesus' disciples who were listening said, 'This saying in hard; who can accept it?' ... As a result of this, many of his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him." - John 6:60-69That's what I got at least. Works for me.
"As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord." - Joshua 24
Amen. God bless Archbishop Nienstedt.
* Perhaps if any local readers catch this, they might be so kind as to mention if this was done in their parish today, and let us know if a text of the letter is available. Thanks.
