Starting September 8, a revised translation of the marriage rite can be used in the United States. There are two new adaptations and some other minor updates. It’s a chance to re-appreciate the beauty of Catholic marriage!
The Catholic Order of Matrimony centers around two key moments: the Exchange of Consent and the Nuptial Blessing. Marriage is rooted in the couple’s mutual vows of faithful love and is blessed by God as an image of the marriage between Christ and the Church. The couple’s declaration of reciprocal consent and the nuptial blessing reveal the sacramental nature of marriage as the spouses become symbols of Christ’s selfless love.
