We praise you, O God,
we bless you, Creator of allthings,
who in the beginning made man and
that they might form a communion of
life and love.
We also give you thanks
for graciously blessing our family
so that it might present an image
of Christ's union with the Church.
Therefore look with kindness upon
and as you have sustained our
amid joys and struggles,
renew our Marriage covenant each
increase our charity,
and strengthen in us the bond of
so that we may for ever enjoy your
Through Christ our Lord
