How can I ever express the happiness of a marriage joined by the Church, strengthened by an offering, sealed by a blessing, announced by angels, and ratified by the Father?
- Catechism of the Catholic Church
A Prayer for Marriage:
Father, we thank you for your tremendous gift of the Sacrament of Marriage.
Help us to witness to its glory by a life of growing intimacy.
Teach us the beauty of forgiveness so we may become
more and more One in Heart, Mind and Body.
Strengthen our communication and help us become living signs of your love.
Make us grow more in love with the church so we may renew the Body of Christ.
Make us a sign of unity in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Brother.
(Fr. Bill Dilgen, S.M.M.)
