Witnessing the Sacrament of Matrimony

Is there any greater honor than being included on a wedding guest list and acting as a witness to the joining of two lives in the Sacrament of Matrimony? My husband and I are thrilled that today we will be guests at the wedding of our daughter-in-law's younger brother and his lovely fiance; we will be there to share in their joy as they become man and wife and begin their married life together. We are looking forward to their Catholic wedding Mass, a holy and sacred event like none other. But at the same time, we are looking forward to spending time with our wee granddaughters, not only in the cry room at the church, but at the reception afterwards. (Lucky us--we are seated at the same table as Bonny Babe and Cutie Pie! Ours will be the best table!)

Here's wishing these two wonderful young people a long and happy life together! In celebration of their marriage, here's a toast to the happy couple:

A Gaelic Wedding Prayer:

May the blessings of the Lord

who brings love and joy and health

follow you all the days of your life.
