Wedding




This past Saturday, I had the privilege of marrying my brother. Um, marrying my brother to a wonderful woman. (That linguistic turn of phrase provided one of the sermon's lighter moments too!)

The marriage took place on the very beautiful Island of Catalina, off the coast of Long Beach, California.

Bro is on the right, new sis-in-law on the left. You can see the top of my head just behind the bride. A very acommodating and friendly American priest co-presided to make the whole thing legal.

A great day with no hitches.

May God bless R and R in their new life as husband and wife.

Weddings are wonderful occasions--signs of the inbreaking Rule of God in which God and all humanity will have a relationship so intimate that Paul considered marriage the closest earthly counterpart.

That said, although weddings are signs of sheer joy, marriages are HARD WORK--as 13 years have taught me. (Fortunately, my Beloved is very patient.)
