Congratulations to Our Newest Golden Couple!

September 17, 2012

Congratulations, Ed and Louise Mullaney, on your upcoming fiftieth Wedding Anniversary! Thank you for the above invitation (which will enlarge if clicked on) to share your joy at the open house at your place this Sunday afternoon! Let’s all offer the following prayer, which is adapted from the BAS Wedding ceremony, for Ed and Louise:

Most gracious God, we give you thanks for your tender love in sending Jesus Christ to come among us, to be born of a human mother, and to make the way of the cross to be the way of life. We thank you, also, for consecrating the union of man and woman in his name. By the power of your Holy Spirit, pour out the abundance of your blessing upon Ed and Louise. Defend them from every enemy. Lead them into all peace. Let their love for each other be a seal upon their hearts, a mantle about their shoulders, and a crown upon their foreheads. Bless them in their work and in their companionship; in their sleeping and in their waking; in their joys and in their sorrows; in their life and in their death. Finally, in your mercy, bring them to that table where your saints feast for ever in your heavenly home; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Embedded below is a video of the Top Ten hit from Ed and Louise’s Wedding year, 1962: “When I Fall in Love,” by The Lettermen.
