The publication of the second edition of The Order of Celebrating Matrimony provides new liturgical and pastoral opportunities for presiders and parishes. In One Love, Fr. Paul Turner-one of the most reliable experts in Catholic liturgy today-provides sound guidance and instruction on the rite. Among the many important and practical topics he covers are:
uses for the expanded introduction
the engagement ceremony
the location for the wedding
the revised words for the questions, consent, and reception of consent
the customs of the arras, the lazo, and the veil
other wedding customs
One Love promises to be the go-to liturgical resource on Catholic weddings for years to come.
