Circles have no beginning and has no end, and so in the long and sacred tradition of marriage rings have come to symbolize eternal love and endless union of body, of mind, and of the spirit. They have been given by lovers to each other as tokens of faith, trust, and hope as well as a tangible sign of a promise given and kept through the days of their lives together.
We are here to witness the making of this promise, and giving of all the intangibles of their heart and spirit: love, trust, faith, and hope, not just in each other, but also in their relationship. They are making a declaration before all of you that from this day forth, they are united before the world in a promise that spans the years of their lives. Pretty powerful stuff! And as we witness their covenant to each other, we are all reminded of the promises we’ve made in other times and other places to the people we’ve chosen to love and cherish. It is also a beautiful opportunity to refresh our love for our beloveds, renew our commitment to our mates, and remind ourselves of the continuity of life. And now, I invite each of you to share in the blessing of these rings for ___________ and ___________.
Heavenly Father and Holy Mother, we call for your blessing for these rings, both as symbols of love and union between ____________and __________, and as tokens of their hopes and dreams fulfilled in their commitment to each other this day and every day of the rest of their lives together. We ask that these rings hold and carry these dreams, remind them of the endless circle of their union to each other, and be a beautiful reflection of their sacred vows to each other, now and always. We seek this blessing of love not only for ____________ and ___________, but also for all those who are now married, or have in the past made vows of love to someone they loved. All this we ask, as is our divine right as children of God, Through the Christ in all of us, Amen.
