Love is in the air.

Over the past twelve months these newlyweds either celebrated their wedding at St John the Beloved or invited me to witness their vows. We wish you love, purity, joy, happiness, patience, courage, humility, mercy, gratitude, and peace. May the Lord bless you with many wonderful years together leading to eternal life. May He surround you with at least a few dear, trusted friends, many kind acquaintances and thousands of encouraging fellow parishioners who will support you and pray for you.

And there were quite a few weddings thirteen months ago!

Needless to say, I am looking forward to these weddings in the next few weeks and months:

Patrick Wilborn & Maggie Himpler
Garrett Cichowitz & Christy Allison
Alex Foshay & Sally Hrouda
Jimmy Martinson & Sophia Buono
Raymond Dinunzio & Cristina Wingerter
Stuart Beckett & Serena Hoernig
Patrick McCrary & Michelle Moebus

May you grow closer to each other and to the Lord. May you permit Him to prepare you well for the life of heroic love, the life of the Cross and Resurrection. That does not count the engagements that I expect to be announced in the near future. Who’s next? Duc in altum!
