Freedom to Marry

"When you say to one another, 'I love you,'
be able to say, 'I love in you everyone.
I love through you the world.
I love life.
I love in you also myself.'
In loving one another, you make it possible to love more.
As you hold each other,
know you are held in a larger embrace.
We are all connected
and your choice of commitment affects us all.
Your commitment strengthens our fidelity to one another,
for we depend on one another more than we know.
May your love for one another enlarge your embrace —
to love people,
the earth,
and yourselves.
So much is possible.
May love, wherever it is found, be celebrated and recognized.
We see the love between you
and we know your days together will be good,
for you and for us all.
To be worthy of a gift, say so,
I do, yes I do.
I promise with my heart, yes,
and with my mind, yes,
and with my body, yes,
for better, for worse,
for richer, for poorer,
in sickness and in health,
to love you always,
yes, oh yes.
To be worthy of this gift,
say so
and rejoice,
rejoice, rejoice."
