Love is not in the falling... it's in the staying

Greetings and welcome to Santa Rosa Church.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and on your decision to make a commitment to each other through the sacrament of marriage. You and your future spouse have fallen in love, and together you have discerned that God is calling you to commit yourselves to each other for the rest of your life.

I am looking forward to the day when, before God and each other you will say some of the most important words of your life: “I do!
