THE RITE OF MARRIAGE
INTRODUCTORY RITES
Commentator:
Good afternoon, brothers and sisters. Today, we gather as a
community
to participate in the Holy Eucharist and to witness the celebration
of the
Sacrament of Marriage between Sherwin and Abbie. Let us all
stand to welcome the Mass Celebrant, Rev. Fr. Renie Oliver.

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

All:

Amen.

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

All:

And with your spirit.

Priest:

Dear brothers and sisters, we are gathered to celebrate the Holy
Eucharist and to witness the Sacrament of Marriage between
Sherwin and Abbie. As their Christian Family, we remind them that
they are called to a life of holiness and fidelity as husband and
wife. Let us rejoice with them and ask God’s blessing for their and
their future children.
PENITENTIAL ACT

Priest:

Brothers and sisters, let us acknowledge our sins, and so prepare
ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries.

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, through my
fault, through my most grievous fault; therefore I asked the
Blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you, my
brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.

Priest:

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

All:

Amen.

Priest:

Lord, have mercy.

All:

Lord, have mercy.

Priest:
All:

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace of people of good
praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify, we give you

thanks for
your great glory, Lord God, heavenly King, O God Almighty Father.
Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son, Lord God, Lamb of God, Son
of the Father, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on
us; you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayers; you

5

are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For
you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, your are the
Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God
the Father. Amen.
COLLECT
Priest:

Let us pray. Be attentive to our prayers, O Lord, and in your
kindness uphold what you have established for the increase of the
human race, so that the union you have created between Sherwin
and Abbie may be kept safe by your assistance. Through our Lord
Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity
of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

All:

Amen.

Commentator:

Please be seated for the Liturgy of the Word.
LITURGY OF THE WORD

FIRST READING
Sirach 26:1-4, 13-16
Reader:

A reading from the Book of Sirach, Chapter 26
Blessed the husband of a good wife, twice-lengthened are his
days; A worthy wife brings joy to her husband, peaceful and full is
his life. A good wife is a generous gift bestowed upon him who
fears the Lord; be he rich or poor, his heart is content, and a smile
is ever on his face. A gracious wife delights her husband, her
thoughtfulness puts flesh on his bones; a gift from the Lord is her
governed speech, and her firm virtue is of surpassing worth.
Choicest of blessings is a modest wife, priceless her chaste soul. A
holy and decent woman adds grace upon grace; indeed, no price
is worthy of her temperate soul. Like the sun rising in the Lord’s
heavens, the beauty of a virtuous wife is the radiance of her
home.
The Word of the Lord

All:

Thanks be to God.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM
Psalm 128:1-2, 3, 4-5
Reader:

Responsorial Psalm. Let our response be: “See how the Lord
blesses those who fear him. Please repeat.

All:

See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.

Reader:

Blessed are you, who fear the Lord,
Who walk in his ways!
For you shall eat the fruit of your handiwork;
Blessed shall you be, and favored. Response.

All:

See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.

Response:

Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
In the recesses of your home;
Your children like olive plants
Around your table. Response.

All:

See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.

6

Behold, thus is the man blessed who fears the Lord.
The Lord bless you from Zion:
May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
All the days of your life. Response.
Response:

See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.

SECOND READING
Ephesians Chapter 5, Verses 21 to 33
Reader:

A reading from the Letter of Paul to the Ephesians
Be subordinate to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives
should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord; for the
husband is head of his wife just as Christ is head of the church, he
himself the savior of the body.
As the church is subordinate to Christ, so wives should be
subordinate to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your
wives, even as Christ loved the church and handed himself over
for her to sanctify her, cleansing her by the bath of water with the
word, that he might present to himself the church in splendor,
without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy
and without blemish.
So husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who
loves his wife loves himself. For no one hates his own flesh but
rather nourishes and cherishes it, even as Christ does the
church, because we are members of his body.
"For this reason a man shall leave (his) father and (his) mother
and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one
flesh." This is a great mystery, but I speak in reference to Christ
and the church. In any case, each one of you should love his wife
as himself, and the wife should respect her husband.
The Word of the Lord

7

All:

Thanks be to God.

Commentator:

Please all stand to honor the Holy Gospel.
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION

Commentator:

God is love; let us love one another as he has loved us.

All:

Alleluia, Alleluia.
GOSPEL

Priest:
All:
Priest:

The Lord be with you.
And with your spirit.
A reading from the holy Gospel according to St. Matthew.

All:

Glory to you, O Lord.

Priest:

Some Pharisees approached Jesus, and tested him, saying, “Is it
lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?” He
said in reply, “Have you not read that from the beginning the
Creator made them male and female and said, For this reason a
man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife,
and the two shall become one flesh? So they are no longer two,
but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, man must
not separate.”
The Gospel of the Lord.

All:

Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ.

Commentator:

Please be seated and listen to the homily.

the Best Man, James Dimaano, to please come forward for the
blessing of the rings.

Priest:

Sherwin and Abbie, we shall now bless your rings. Our help is in

Sherwin and Abbie may always have a deep faith in each other.
May they do your will and always live together in peace, good will,
and love. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

All:

Amen.

Sherwin & Abbie:

Lord, bless and consecrate us in our love for each other. May
these rings be a symbol of true faith in each other, and always

constant concern for your welfare and that of the children God

the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Let this be a sign that our blessings will no longer be held
separately but together, and that whatever gifts they we will have
in the coming years are ultimately not ours but God’s.

service of the Lord. We ask you this through Christ Our Lord.

Amen.

And now, as a sign of our joy for and approval of this bond, let us
give our newly married couple, Sherwin and Abbie, a joyful round

of applause.

11

PROFESSION OF FAITH
All:

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth;
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, He was conceived
by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under
Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended
to the dead. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into
Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come
again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the
forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and
the life everlasting. Amen.

Commentator:

PRAYER OVER THE OFFERINGS

Priest:

Receive, we pray, O Lord, the offering made on the occasion of
the sealing of the sacred bond of Marriage between Sherwin and
Abbie, and just as your goodness is its origin, may your
providence guide its course. Through Christ our Lord.

All:

Amen.
PREFACE

Priest:

The Lord be with you.

All:

And with your spirit.

Priest:

Lift up your hearts.

All:

We lift them up to the Lord.

Priest:
All:

Let us give thanks to the Lord, our God.
It is right and just.

14
Priest:

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. For you have forged the covenant of marriage as a
sweet yoke of harmony and an unbreakable bond of peace, so
that the chaste and fruitful love of holy Matrimony may serve to
increase the children you adopt as your own. By your providence
and grace, O Lord, you accomplish the wonder of this twofold
design: that, while the birth of children brings beauty to the world,
their rebirth in Baptism gives increase to the Church, through
Christ our Lord. Through him, with the Angels and all the Saints,
we sing the hymn of your praise, as without the end we acclaim:
SANCTUS

All:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of
your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the
name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
CONSECRATION

Commentator:

Please kneel for the Consecration.

Priest:

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 dewfall, so that they may become for us the Body and
Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. At the night he was betrayed and
entered willingly into his Passion, he took 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 you 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.
The mystery of faith.

All:

We proclaim your Death, O Lord, and profess your Resurrection
until you come again.
EUCHARISTIC PRAYER

Priest:

15

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 Buenaventura 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
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.

Priest:

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.

All:

Amen.

us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we
forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into
temptation, but deliver us from evil.
NUPTIAL BLESSING

Priest:

Let us humbly invoke by our prayers, dear brothers and sisters,
God’s blessing upon Sherwin and Abbie, that in his kindness he
may favor with his help those on whom he has bestowed the
Sacrament of Matrimony.

All pray silently for a short while. Then the priest extends his hands over the couple
and imparts the Nuptial Blessing.
Priest:

Holy Father, who formed man in your own image, male and
female you created them, so that as husband and wife, united in
body and heart, they might fulfill their calling in the world;
O God, who willed that the love of spouses for each other should

16

foreshadow the covenant you graciously made with your
people, may the mystical marriage of Christ with his Church truly
become manifest in the union of husband and wife among your
faithful;
Grant, O Lord, that, as they enter upon this sacramental union,
they may share with one another the gifts of your love and, by
being for each other a sign of your presence, become one heart
and one mind.
May they also sustain by their deeds the home they are forming
and prepare their children to become members of your heavenly
household by raising them in the way of the Gospel.

Graciously crown with your blessings your daughter Abbie, so
that, by being a good wife and mother, she may bring warmth to
her home with a love that is pure and adorn it with welcoming
graciousness.
O Lord, bestow heavenly blessing also on Sherwin, your servant,
that he may be a worthy, good and faithful husband and a
provident father.
Grant, Father, that, desiring to approach your table as a couple
joined in Marriage in your presence, they may one day have the
joy of taking part in your great banquet in heaven.
Through Christ our Lord.
