Name or Pseudonym: Mary
Subject: Mixed marriage

Several years ago one of my children married a person from another faith. It was obvious to them that it would be difficult to be married in a place of worship, yet they wanted a religious ceremony. I contacted the priest who had married me and he agreed to be one of the celebrants. His love of God and his kindness and understand as well as the gracious manner with which he and the other celebrant approached this young couple helped to lay a solid foundation for their married life. They also made a profound impression on many of the people who had come to witness the nuptuals.

I am so happy that this priest has been a part of my life.
