Priest : My brothers and sisters we prepare ourselves to celebrate this Sacred Mysteries, let us call to mind our sins. All : I confess to Almighty God, and to you my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned in my thoughts, and in my words, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do, through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore, I ask the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, all the angels and saints and you my brothers and sisters to pray for me to the Lord our God.

We ask this through Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. All : Amen. Everyone sits down for the First Reading. Liturgy of the Word First Reading Atty Donna Angela Agoncillo Reader : A reading fromthe Song of Songs: Hark! My lover! Here he comes springing across the mountains, leaping across the hills. My lover is like a gazelle or a young stag. Here he stands behind our wall, gazing through the window, peering through the lattices. My lover speaks. He says to me, Arise, my beloved, my beautiful one and come! O my love in the clefts of the rocks, in the secret recesses of the cliff. Let me see you, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet and you are lovely. My lover belongs to me and I to Him. He said to me, Set me as a seal in your heart, as a seal on your arm. For stormas death is love, relentless as the netherworld as devotion, its flames are a blazing fire. Deep waters cannot quench love nor flood sweep it away. This is the Word of the Lord. All : Thanks be to God. Responsorial PsalmReader : Let our response be: I will bless the Lord at all times. (Please repeat). All : I WILL BLESS THE LORD AT ALL TIMES Reader : I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall ever be in my mouth. My soul will glorify in the Lord that the poor may hear and be glad. All : I WILL BLESS THE LORD AT ALL TIMES Reader : Glorify the Lord with me. Let us exalt His name together. I sought the Lord and He answered me and delivered me fromall my fears. All : I WILL BLESS THE LORD AT ALL TIMES Reader : Look to God that you may be radiant with joy, and your faces may not blush with shame. When the afflicted man called out, the Lord heard, and fromall his distress He saved him. All : I WILL BLESS THE LORD AT ALL TIMES Reader : The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Himand delivers them. Taste and see how good the Lord is, happy the man who takes refuge in Him. All : I WILL BLESS THE LORD AT ALL TIMES Second Reading Mrs. Jean Figueroa Reader : A reading fromthe first letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians. Set your hearts on the greater gifts. I will show you the way which surpasses all the others. If I speak with human tongues and angelic as well, but do not have love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and with full knowledge, comprehend all mysteries, if I have faith great enough to move mountains but have no love, I amnothing. If I give everything I have to feed the poor and hand over my body to be burned, but have not loved, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. Love is not jealous, it does not put on sins, it is not snobbish. Love is never rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not prone to anger, and neither does it brood over injuries. Love does not rejoice in what is wrong, but rejoices with the truth. There is no limit to loves forbearance, to its trust, its hope, its power to endure. Love never fails. This is the Word of the Lord. All : Thanks be to God. Reader : Let us pray. Please rise to honor the Holy Gospel. Everyone rise for the reading of the Holy Gospel The Gospel Alleluia Philippine Madrigal Singers Priest : The Lord be with you! All : And with your spirit! Priest : A reading fromthe Holy Gospel according to St. John. All : Glory to You, Lord Jesus Christ! Priest : Jesus said to His disciples, As the father has loved me, so I have loved you. Live on with my love. You will live in my love if you keep my commandments, even as I have kept my Fathers commandments and live in His love. All this I tell you so that my joy maybe yours and your joy may be complete. This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you. This is the Gospel of the Lord. All : Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ! Homily Everyone sits down while priest makes his Homily Rites of Marriage: After the Homily, the principal sponsors and the priest will stand. The priest will address the couple. All the rest will remain seated.

Lando, Sa limampung taon nating maligayang pagsasama at pagmamahalan, taos puso akong nagpapasalamat sa Maykapal sa mga biyaya na ating natanggap kung kaya ipinangangako ko muli, ang walang hanggang kong pagmamahal sa iyo at sa ating pamilya.
