EUCHARISTIC CELEBRATION

AND THE RITE OF MARRIAGE

Processional:

Commentator: Good morning brothers and sisters in Christ.

We are gathered today to celebrate love. This Eucharistic Sacrifice of the Mass is an act of love and thanksgiving as we witness the exchange of vows between JED and HONEY. Today, they have come to bind themselves together in Holy Matrimony. Let us therefore ask God constantly guide them all the days of their lives.

Dear friends, let us welcome JED and HONEY and their wedding entourage.

Our celebrant is Rev. Fr. Joel A. Bilan, Jr.

Introductory Rite

Celebrant: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

People: Amen.

Celebrant: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

People: And with your spirit.

Celebrant: Dearly beloved JED and HONEY, God in some mysterious way, has drawn you together in love. But He leaves you free to make it grow or let it wither or die. The Lord will help you make it grow, if you do your share and stand to the commitment in the covenant which you are about to seal.

Penitential Rite

 Celebrant: Now, my brothers and sisters, coming together as God’s family, with confidence, let us call to mind our sins and ask for the Father’s forgiveness for He is full of compassion and love.

(Brief Silence)

All: I confess to Almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do;

[And, striking their breast, they say] through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault;

Therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.

Celebrant: May Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive our sins, and bring us to everlasting life.

People: Amen.

Song [Lord Have Mercy]

 Opening Prayer

 Celebrant: Let us pray. (Brief Silence)

Father, you have made the bond of marriage a holy, mystery, a symbol of Christ’s love for his Church.

Hear our prayers for Jed and Honey. With faith in You and in each other, they pledge their love today. May their lives always bear witness to the reality of that love. We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.

All: Amen.

Liturgy of the Word:

 Commentator: Please be seated and listen for the Liturgy of the Word.

FIRST READING:

A reading from the Book of Tobit [Tobit 8:5-7]

 Tobias rose from the bed and said to Sarah, “Get up, my sister; you and I must pray and petition our Lord to win his grace and his protection.” She stood up and they began praying for protection and this is how he began: “You are blessed, O God of our fathers; blessed too, is your name forever and ever. Let the heavens and all your creation praise you forever. You made Adam and you gave him his Eve to be his help and support; and from these two the human race descended. You said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; let us make him a partner like himself.’ Now, Lord, you know that I take this wife of mine not because of lust, but of noble purpose. Call down your mercy on me and on her, and allow us to live together to a happy old age.”

[Pause]

The Word of the Lord.

All: Thanks be to God!

Responsorial Psalm:

“How lovely is Your dwelling place, Oh Lord,

Mighty God, Lord of all!”

1. Even the lowly sparrow finds a home for her brood,

And the swallow, a nest for herself

Where she may lay her young

In Your altars, my King and my God. (Response)

2. Blessed are they whose dwelling is your own, Lord of Peace.

Blest are they refreshed by springs and by rain

When dryness daunts and scathes.

Behold my shield, my King and my God. (Response)

3. I would forsake a thousand other days anywhere

If I could spend one day in your courts, belong to you alone.

My strength are you alone, my glory, my King and my God. (Response)

SECOND READING:

A reading from the first letter of Saint Paul to Corinthians [1 Corinthians 12: 31-13: 8]

Strive eagerly for the spiritual gifts. But I shall show you a still more excellent way. If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, (love) is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. [Pause]

The Word of the Lord.

All: Thanks be to God!

Commentator: Let us stand for the Gospel Acclamation.

ALLELUIA Sung

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION AND PROCLAMATION:

Celebrant: The Lord be with you.

People: And with your spirit.

Celebrant: A reading from the holy Gospel according to John (John 4:7-12)

People: Glory to you, O Lord.

Celebrant: Beloved, let us love one another, because love is God; everyone who lives is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love. In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through Him. This is love: not that we have loved God, but he loved us and sent his Son as expiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we must also love one another. No one has ever seen God. Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us, and his love is brought to perfection in us.

The Gospel of the Lord.

All: Praise to you, O Lord Jesus Christ!

Commentator: Please be seated for the homily.

Commentator: Please remain seated for the rite of marriage.

We now come to the Marriage Rite.

WARREN and ROSABELLE now light the candles. Jed and Honey, Christ is the light, the source of life. May you always bear Christ’s light to others.

Jed and Honey entered the church as two separate individuals. In the Holy Matrimony, they have been joined by God and have become one flesh and one individual. The flame is a symbol of God’s warmth, wisdom, love, hope and life, now and forever.

[The candle sponsors shall approach the Altar to light their respective candle. They shall give the Lighted Candles to the couple (male candle sponsor to the groom and female candle sponsor to the bride).The couple lights the Unity Candle and returns to their seats thereafter.]

May we also request their parents and principal sponsors to please come forward and stand at either side of the couple to witness their exchange of vows.

[The Parents and the Principal sponsors form orderly around the couple as in a curve.]

[The priest stands in front of the couple.]

Celebrant: Dearly beloved Jed and Honey, you are here today to seal your love with an eternal bond before the Church. I assure you of the prayers of our community so that God may pour His abundant blessings of your love, and help you carry out the duties of the married state.

[addressing the congregation] And you, dear sponsors, parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends of Jed and Honey, may I ask you to help them with your prayers and accept them as a new couple in our Christian community.

SCRUTINY

Honey: Yes, Father.

Celebrant: [to the groom] Jed, did you come here of your own free will to bind yourself forever in the love and service of your wife?

Jed: Yes, Father.

Celebrant: [addressing both] Jed and Honey, are you both ready to raise as good Christians the children whom God will give you?

Jed & Honey: Yes, Father.

Celebrant: Do you accept her as your lawful wife?

Jed: Yes, I do.

THE MARRIAGE VOWS

To be one heart and one soul

From this day forward

For better, for worse

For richer, for poorer

In sickness and in health

Until death do us part..

CONFIRMATION OF THE MARRIAGE BOND

Celebrant: And I, by the authority of the Church, calling on all those present here as witness, confirm and bless the bond of marriage which you have contracted, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

All: Amen.

Commentator: For the blessings and exchange of rings and arrhae, may I request the Best Man HAROLD and the Maid of Honor LUVSHANE, to accompany the Derick Gabriel, ring bearer,  and HARVEY  to the altar. May we also request CYBER GLENN for the blessing of the Bible.

BLESSING OF THE ARRHAE

Celebrant: Jed and Honey, we shall now bless your arrhae and rings. [pause]

Our help is in the name of the Lord.

All: Who made heaven and earth.

Celebrant: Let us pray. Bless O Lord, your servants, Jed and Honey, with sufficiency of material possessions, which these arrhae symbolize so that they may use them to attain eternal life, through Christ, our Lord.

All: Amen.

BLESSING OF THE RINGS

All: Amen.

BLESSING OF THE BIBLE

May they continue to help spread your message to other people, and may they instill this too, in their children You will bless them, through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.

[The priest sprinkles the Arrhae, the Rings and the Bible with holy water.]

GIVING OF THE RING

Celebrant: The wedding ring is the outward and visible sign of a spiritual bond which unites two loyal hearts.  It is a seal of the vows which you, Jed and Honey have made. Now give these rings to each other.

[The priest takes the Ring of Honey and gives it to Jed who places it on finger of Honey, saying:]

Jed: Honey, wear this ring as a sign of my love and loyalty to you, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Honey: Jed, wear this ring as a sign of my love and loyalty to you, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

GIVING OF THE ARRHAE

Celebrant: Hold these arrhae in your hands as a sign that your blessings will no longer be held separately, but together. And may you always show that whatever possessions you may have in this life is not ultimately yours but God’s.

[The groom holds the arrhae in his cupped hands and the bride places her cupped hands under those of the groom who lets the coins fall into the bride’s hands, as he says:]

Jed: Honey, I give you this arrhae as a pledge of my concern and dedication to your welfare, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Honey: I accept them.

[Honey places the arrhae on the tray]

GIVING OF THE BIBLE

Celebrant: Jed and Honey, accept this Holy Bible, the Living Word of God. May His words be a source of guidance, strength and wisdom as you live together in life.

Jed and Honey: We accept God’s Word  with humility and fervent prayer that may God reign in our married life, in the family we will raise and in the home we will build together.

[The couple places the Bible on their pew.]

PRESENTATION OF THE NEWLY-WED COUPLE TO THE ASSEMBLED COMMUNITY

Celebrant: My dear brothers and sisters gathered in this assembly, it is my honor to present to you Jed and Honey as a newly married couple in our community. Let us give them a warm applause.

All: Amen.

Commentator: Please be seated for the preparation of the Gifts.

 

OFFERTORY

 Commentator: May I request RALPH JOSEPH and ERNEST RUELLIE to put on the VEIL. [The veil is laid over the head of Honey and the shoulder of Jed] Jed and Honey, the veil emphasizes your union and your mutual self-surrender. May you grow in unity and self-sacrifice as you begin a new stage of reciprocity and giftedness of self n your married life. [Pause]

 HOMER and JANICE shall put on the CORD. [Pause] [The Cord of an 8 is placed over the shoulders of the Couple) The cord refers to yoke which means two things: something has to be carried, and also something  that  unites those who carry it. Jed and Honey, may you always be united in carrying out your obligations of the married state. [Pause]

 CARMELO  and MARIANNE  shall put on  the RIBBON. [Pause]  The ribbon  refers to the love and respect you, Jed and Honey, will have with and for each other. Your divine union is built upon your friendship, made strong by your commitment, and made sacred by your love. You are each a blessing for the other; a comforter, lover, companion, and guide. You will enrich one another and discover many more blessings as you share your lives together every day. [Pause]

 

 LITURGY OF THE EUCHARIST:

[The priest does the following silently while the Offertory Song is sung.]

 Celebrant: Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for through your goodness we have received the bread we offer  you: fruit of the earth and work of human hands, it will become for us the bread of life.

All: Blessed be God for ever.

Celebrant: Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for through your goodness we have received the wine we offer you: fruit of the vine and work of human hands, it will become our spiritual drink.

All: Blessed be God for ever.

[When the wedding symbols are in place, the priest invites the people in the following words:]

 Celebrant: Pray, brethren (brothers and sisters), that my sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God, the Almighty Father.

Commentator: Please stand.

All: May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name, for our good and the good of all his holy Church.

 PRAYERS OVER THE GIFTS

 Celebrant: Receive, we pray,  O Lord, the offering made in the occasion of this sealing of the sacred bond of Marriage, and, just as your goodness is its origin may your providence guide its course. Through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.

PREFACE

Celebrant: The Lord be with you.

All: And with your spirit.

Celebrant: Lift up your hearts.

All: We lift them up to the Lord.

Celebrant: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All: It is right and just.

Celebrant: It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,

Always and everywhere to give you thanks,

Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God,

Through Christ our Lord.

For you willed that the human race,

Created by the gift of your goodness,

Should be raised to such dignity

that in the union of husband and wife

you might bestow a true image of your love.

For those you created out of charity

You call to the law of charity without ceasing

And grant them a share in your eternal charity.

And so, the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony,

As the abiding sign of your own love,

Consecrates the love of man and woman,

Through Christ  our Lord.

Through Him, with the Angels and all the Saints,

We sing the hymn of your praise,

As without end we acclaim:

SANCTUS Sung

Commentator: Please kneel.

EUCHARISTIC PRAYER II

Celebrant: You are indeed Holy, O Lord, the fount of all holiness. Make holy, therefore, these gifts, we pray, by sending down your Spirit upon them like the dewfall, so that they may become for us the Body and  † Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

At the time he was betrayed and entered willingly into his Passion, he took the bread and, giving thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying:

TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT,

FOR THIS IS MY BODY, WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR YOU.

In a similar way, when supper was ended, he took the chalice and, once more giving  thanks, he gave it to his disciples, saying:

TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND DRINK FROM IT,

FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD,

THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL COVENANT,

WHICH WILL BE POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR MANY

FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME.

Priest: The mystery of faith.

Commentator: Please stand.

ANAMNESIS Sung

Celebrant: Therefore, as we celebrate the memorial of his Death and Resurrection, we offer you, Lord, the Bread of life and the Chalice of salvation, giving thanks that you have held us worthy to be in your presence and minister to you.

Humbly we pray that, partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ, we may be gathered into one by the Holy Spirit.

Remember, Lord, your Church, spread throughout the world, and bring her to the fullness of charity, together with Francis our Pope and Arturo our Bishop and all the clergy.

Remember also our brothers and sisters who have fallen asleep in the hope of the resurrection, and all who have died in your mercy; welcome them into the light of your face. Have mercy on us all, we pray, that with the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, with St. Joseph, her spouse, with the blessed Apostles, and all the Saints who have pleased you throughout the ages, we may merit to be coheirs to eternal life, and may praise and glorify you through your Son, Jesus Christ. [pause]

Through him, and with him, and in him, O God, almighty Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, for ever and ever.

People: AMEN (to be Sung)

Celebrant: At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Celebrant: Holy Father, maker of the world, who created man and woman in your own image and willed that their union be crowned with your blessing, we humbly beseech you for these your servants, who are joined today in the Sacrament of Matrimony.

May your abundant blessing, Lord, come down upon Honey and Jed, her companion for life, and may the power of your Holy Spirit set their hearts aflame from on high, so that, living out together the gift of Matrimony, they may (adorn their family with children and) enrich the Church.

In happiness may they praise you, O Lord, in sorrow may they seek you out; may they have the joy of your presence to assist them in their toil, and know that you are near to comfort them in their need; let them pray to you in the holy assembly and bear witness to you in the world and after a happy old age, together with the circle of friends that surrounds them, may they come to the Kingdom of Heaven. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
