Now I'm Married!

Today we had our marriage validated in the Church. There is nothing cooler than being able to marry your husband again after 22 years!

My sister and her family as well as dh's brother attended. The ceremony took place after our parish's 11 o'clock Mass.

DH played and we sang at the Mass beforehand. I chose Song of Joy, How Great Thou Art, Come My Way, My Truth My Life, Breathe and God's Blessing Sends Us Forth. It is such a privilege and blessing to be able to do that every week together, and it was especially rewarding to be able to do the music for the Mass that preceded our marriage validation.

As I was returning from communion, I was thinking, "I just took communion at my Wedding Mass!" Our son was an impromptu altar server as Father needed someone to hold the aspersory and aspergillium so he could bless our rings. DS stood up there, handsome in his suit and tie, complete with long hair and new earring, and I couldn't have been prouder. It was thrilling and rewarding to be able to have what and who were important to us play a part.

Our priest arranged to have a small reception at someone's home afterwards. The entire experience made me realize again that we are very blessed.

congratulations! That is a wonderful blessing. Not to mention that you WANT to marry your husband after 22 years.. (mostly just kidding). Most people are trying to ditch after just a few.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
