|Blessing & Exchange of Rings
I explain the meaning of wedding rings and
the reasons why the rings themselves are so
rings before you slip them onto each other's
fingers. Thus the exchange of sacred objects
is, itself, made sacred.
Weddings rings are the lasting symbols of
the vows and commitments made on the
wedding day. Long after the cake and flowers
are gone and the clothing put away, the ring
will remain as a reminder of the promises of
the wedding service.
|"Your rings are symbolic in that they say to all who see you wear them, that these promises have
been made. The ring is a symbol of unity, in which your two lives are now joined in one unbroken
Blessing: "Bless, O Lord, this ring, to be a sign and reminder of the vows by which this man and
this woman have bound themselves to each other; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen"
Place this ring on her finger and repeat after me:
Roger: With this ring I thee wed, and I do
promise, to be thy loving and faithful
husband, and the world will know - that I
am yours and you are mine.
Susan: With this ring I thee wed, and I do
promise, to be thy loving and faithful wife,
and the world will know - that I am yours
and you are mine.
