NUPTIAL MASS

INTRODUCTORY RITES
PROCESSIONAL GREETINGS

Neil Nolan : With marriage, Christ did something wonderful, He elevated it to the high dignity of a sacrament, through which God’s grace is given to us. The Sacrament of Matrimony is sacrament of the “living” received by a person who is spiritually alive.

Let us all join Neil and Megan as they pray for their faithfulness in their covenant. May their union strengthen and may their love deepen, and that the Lord will bless their shared moments, all the days of their loves. Let us be ready to give them the support and encouragement that they will be needing as they come to live out their love creatively.

LITUGY OF THE WORD

First Reading
Julius : The first reading is taken from the book of Genesis (2:18-24)
Then the Lord God said, “It is good for man to live alone. I will make a suitable companion to help him”

So He took some soil from the ground and formed all the animals and all the bird. Then he brought them to man to see what he would name them; and this is how they all got their names. So the man named all the birds and all the animals; but not one of them was suitable companion to help him.

Then the lord God made the man fall into a deep sleep, and while he was sleep, and while he was sleeping. He took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the flesh. He formed a woman out of the rib and brought her to him. Then the man said, “At last, here is one of my own kind, bone taken from my bone, and flesh from my flesh. “Woman” is her name be cause she was taken out of man”.

The word of the Lord.

All : Thanks be to God.

Responsorial Psalm
Carmelita : For the responsorial psalm, let our response be:
TILL THE END OF MY DAYS, O LORD, I WILL BLESS YOUR NAME. SING YOUR PRAISE, GIVE YOU THANKS, ALL MY DAYS!
1. You have made me, little less than a God, and have lavished my heart with your love. With dignity and honor you’ve clothed me, Given me rule over all. (RESPONSE….)

2. You have blessed me with good things and plenty and surrounded my table with friends, their love and their laughter enrich me, together we sing your praise. (RESPONSE….)

3. How great is your love, O Father, That You send us your Savior Son. His death and His rising will heal us, and draw all unto you. (RESPONSE….)

Second Reading
Grace Marie: Taken from the first letter of Paul to the Ephesians (Ephesians 5:21-33)
Submit yourselves to one another because of your reverence to Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your husband’s as to the Lord. For a husband has the authority over his wife, in the same way that Christ has the authority over the Church, His Body. And so wives must submit themselves completely to their husbands, in the same way that the Church submits itself to Christ.

Husbands, love your wives in the same way that Christ love the Church and gave His life for it. He did it to dedicate the Church to God, by His word, after making it clean by washing in water. In order to present the Church to Himself, in all beauty, pure and faultless, without spot or wrinkle, or any imperfection. Men ought to love their wives just as they love their own bodies. As the scripture says: BECAUSE OF THIS, MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER TO BE UNITED WITH HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH, this is a very great mystery, and I refer to Christ and the Church. As for you, let each one love his wife as himself, and every wife respect her husband.
The Word of the Lord.

All : Thanks be to God.

Lighting of the Candles
Neil Nolan : May we now request the candle sponsors to light the couple’s candles.

Let us all stand to honor the Holy Gospel

Alleluia Gospel
Priest : The Lord with you.

All : And Also with you.

Priest : A reading from the Gospel according to John (John 15:12-16)

All : Glory to you, O Lord.

Priest : Jesus said to his disciples: This is my commandment: love one an other as I have loved you. There is no greater love than this: to lay one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer speak of you as slaves, for a slave does not know what his master is doing. Instead, I call you friends, since I have made known to you all that I heard from my father. It was not you who chose me, it was I who chose you to go forth and bear fruit. Your fruit must endure, so that all you ask the Father in my name He will give you.
The gospel of the Lord.

All : Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
