Blessing from bride's parents

Greeting:

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today for one of the happiest occasions in all human life, to celebrate before God the marriage of a man and woman who love each other.

It is our joy to witness and celebrate their wedding as Edward and Yolanda become one -- as they promise a new life of unity and love. We come to share in their joy and to ask God, to bless them. We recognize marriage as a gift of God, sealed by a sacred covenant and sustained by God's love.

We pray that this couple may fulfill God's purpose for the whole of their lives, by always living within this love and within this joy. With our love, we support Edward and Yolanda, as they freely give themselves to each other.

El matrimonio es un misterio santo, un símbolo del amor de Cristo por su iglesia. Escucha nuestras oraciones por Edward y Yolanda. Con fe en ti y en cada uno ellos te prometen su amor hoy.

Que sus vidas siempre den testimonio de la realidad de ese amor. Te lo pedimos por Jesucristo, tu Hijo quien vive y reina contigo y el Espíritu Santo un Dios, para siempre. Amen

To this moment they bring the fullness of their hearts as a treasure to share with one another. They bring dreams that bind them together. We rejoice with them as they express the outward symbol of their inward union of hearts that has already been created by friendship, respect and love.

Readings (Spanish & English)

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. Now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

I Corintios 13: 4-7,

Tener amor es saber soportar; es ser bondadoso; es no tener envidia, ni ser presumido, ni orgullos, ni grosero, ni egoísta; es no enojarse ni guardar rencor; es no alegrarse de las injusticias, sino de la verdad. Tener amor es sufrirlo todo, creerlo todo, esperarlo todo, soportarlo todo. Tres cosas hay que son permanentes: la fe, la esperanza y el amor; pero la más importante de las tres es el amor

Jim: In this sacred and joyful moment, we call upon the highest in you, Edward and Yolanda, the divine inner presence that brought you to love and has chosen for you the sweet commitment of marriage.
