Mary Mother of Jesus Inclusive Catholic Community at SCC
*Blessing for Bob and Colleen
November 6, 2014

(Please extend hands in blessing)

O God, your son Jesus began his ministry
at a wedding celebration.

May the joy that is experienced as two people begin a life together
Continue to grow and deepen through all that
 life has to offer along the way.

May Jesus continue to transform the water of their every day
To the wine of new vision so that what seems ordinary
Becomes transformed by love.

May Bob and Colleen grow old together knowing the best wine
Is saved till last and
That Jesus is the abiding guest and
Their companion on the way.
We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
