Info on Readings
When you get the book I mentioned you will see all the readings. Below are the ones I selected. They are beautiful and I thought they were very fitting for a wedding celebration because they talk about love! FYI I also found this website that will help you with the readings http://catholicweddi...adings-rite.htm
I cant stress the book I cant recommend enogh because its the exact order the priest will follow.
Bellow are my choices. Still get the book because it will help you organize the order of every thing.
First Reading (Old Testament) during a Catholic wedding
The two of them become one body.
A reading from the Book of Genesis 2:18-24
The Lord God said: â€œIt is not good for the man to be alone.
I will make a suitable partner for him.â€
So the Lord God formed out of the ground
various wild animals and various birds of the air,
and he brought them to the man to see what he would call them;
whatever the man called each of them would be its name.
The man gave names to all the cattle,
all the birds of the air, and all wild animals;
but none proved to be the suitable partner for the man.
So the Lord God cast a deep sleep on the man,
and while he was asleep,
he took out one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.
The Lord God then built up into a woman the rib
that he had taken from the man.
When he brought her to the man, the man said:
â€œThis one, at last, is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
This one shall be called â€˜woman,â€™
for out of â€˜her manâ€™ this one has been taken.â€
That is why a man leaves his father and mother
and clings to his wife,
and the two of them become one body.
The word of the Lord
First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians 13:4-8
Second Reading (New Testament) during a Catholic wedding
I do not have love, I gain nothing.
A reading from the first Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians 12:31â€“13:8a
Brothers and sisters:
Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts.
But I shall show you a still more excellent way.
If I speak in human and angelic tongues
but do not have love,
I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.
And if I have the gift of prophecy
and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge;
if I have all faith so as to move mountains,
but do not have love, I am nothing.
If I give away everything I own,
and if I hand my body over so that I may boast
but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind.
It is not jealous, is not pompous,
it is not inflated, it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing
but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.
The word of the Lord.
They are no longer two, but one flesh.
A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark 10:6-9
â€œFrom the beginning of creation,
God made them male and female.
For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
and be joined to his wife,
and the two shall become one flesh.
So they are no longer two but one flesh.
Therefore what God has joined together,
no human being must separate.â€
The Gospel of the Lord.
