Father Domas:

When almighty God created the universe, he thought "I'll do it my way."

And he did it, with a big bang.

What does this have to do with marriage?

I don't know.

But the active ingredient in all this is love -- love for people, love for oneself, love for each other, love for everyone else, and love for everything else.

And there is no need for me to say anything else.

Father Domas: Terrence, do you take Elizabeth to be your wife? Do you promise to be true to her, in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love her and honor her all the days of your life?

Terrence: I do.

Father Domas: Elizabeth, do you take Terrence to be your husband? Do you promise to be true to him, in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love him and honor him all the days of your life?

Elizabeth: I do.

Father Domas: You have declared your consent before the Church. May the Lord in his goodness strengthen your consent, and fill you with his blessings. What God has joined together, men must not divide.
