And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Let us be grateful for the capacity to see, feel, hear, and understand.
Let us be grateful for this incredible gift of life.
Let us be especially grateful for the ties of love which bind us together,
giving dignity, meaning, worth and joy to all our days.
This is indeed a day which the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice in it and be glad, and let us count our many blessings.
_____, I take you to be my husband/wife, from this time onward; to join with you and to share all that is to come; to be your faithful husband/wife; to give and to receive; to speak and to listen; to inspire and to respond; a commitment made in love, kept in faith, and eternally made new.
You make my joys greater and my sorrows more bearable, and you make my spirit feel known. From this day forward, you are my husband and companion, and I promise, with Divine assistance, to be a loving and faithful wife for the rest of our lives.
