United in Christ: Preparing the Liturgy of the Word at Catholic Weddings is perfect for parish staffs to provide couples with a high quality and pastoral resource for preparing all aspects of the Liturgy of the Word for their wedding. This includes:
·Full texts of the readings from The Order of Celebrating Matrimony in sense line format
·Pastoral Scripture commentary written by married Catholic scholars and liturgical ministers
·Reading suggestions for a cohesive and unified Liturgy of the Word
·Reasons a couple might select a particular reading
·Guidance for writing the Prayer of the Faithful with sample texts
·Full texts of the consent, blessing and exchange of rings, and the Nuptial Blessing
·Selection form to turn in to the pastor, deacon, or liturgist
Unlike other resources on the market, United in Christ presents a focused and simple resource to help couples select the most necessary parts of the wedding liturgy. The commentaries explain the meaning of the Scripture text through the lens of the needs of the couple. Bulk pricing is available for large quantity purchases.
“Over the past decade working in Marriage preparation and assisting couples in planning for their wedding liturgies, I have often struggled to find resources that are actually helpful to the couple in preparing for their wedding ceremony. This resource is a fresh approach and helpful solution to this dilemma! The commentary and reflections contained herein provide insightful background on the Scripture texts, and the recommendations for matching up readings are particularly helpful, especially for those who may be new to the realm of liturgical preparation. I highly recommend this book to all engaged couples, and it will be a go-to resource for my own wedding liturgy preparation.”
