“Love and marriage, love and marriage
Go together like a horse and carriage
This I tell you brother
You can’t have one without the other.”
~ The Chairman of the Board
Soon, we will be celebrating a big wedding in the family – Iulia and Mickey.
Marriage, like the birth of a child, is one of God’s way of speaking to us.
It is His way of telling us:
That love is stranger than our fears, loneliness or anger.
That life is stronger than death and it will not be denied.
That caring and sharing makes more sense that selfishness and greed.
Marriage and parenting are relationships that do not make sense financially.
Subjecting them to a cost/benefit analysis, they are often a losing proposition.
But people plunge into them anyway – madly, with faith, in love.
Two persons come together and love happens
as their hearts start beating as one in sympathetic vibration.
Their love and fidelity find concrete expression in their offsprings
who, like an harmonic tremor, are but the indication
of their deep longing and deeper love for each other.
I pray for the marriage of Iulia and Mix
and for all the brave couples who have sanctified marriage
with their love and in the process have had love sanctify their marriage,
making this world a better and happier place to live in.
