I wasn't planning to watch the Royal Wedding footage today (not that I wasn't looking forward to seeing Kate's dress...I knew there would be plenty of photos). But, I am so glad we (Grandma, Mom, me and the girls) did. It was so beautiful and in fact, inspiring. I loved the ceremony, it was so centered on beauty and truth. I was especially moved by the Bishop of London’s Address/Sermon. When I heard it, I immediately thought that everyone should have an opportunity to hear/read and meditate on it’s words. I have put my favorite excerpts below. Some of the best marital advice I've heard. You can read the whole transcript here. Enjoy!
"Faithful and committed relationships offer a door into the mystery of spiritual life in which we discover this: the more we give of self, the richer we become in soul; the more we go beyond ourselves in love, the more we become our true selves and our spiritual beauty is more fully revealed. In marriage we are seeking to bring one another into fuller life."
