A Nuptial Prayer


Most merciful God, 
our Maker and our Judge,
thou hast consecrated 
the holy covenant of Marriage,
that wonderful and sacred Mystery,
that in it is manifested 
the spiritual marriage and unity
betwixt Christ and his Church:
Look in thine abundant charity
upon thy servant and handmaiden
that N may love his wife
as Christ loves his Bride the Church
and that N may love her husband
as the Church is called to love her Lord.
Bless them both
that they may inherit thine endless kingdom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
