san diego-alfonso nuptial

Two souls parted with those two words again--Trixie and Francis. As the wedding rite is being celebrated, I ask Berna, who was then seating beside me "How do you know if the person you're with is the one?". She wasn't able to give me an answer and my mind seemed to went blank. Maybe someday I would know, or yet, I would dare to find out for myself. Marriage is something that is scaring me right now. Perhaps, the Big C is too much for me yet.

But I am really happy for Trixie and Francis, that they have found each other. I pray that the good Lord showers them with all the sweet blessings of heaven. May they keep they're love alive through the years.

I love to quote the second reading lifted from 1 Corinthians 13. Trix and Francis, may you two love each other with this kind of love:

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, (love) 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. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially and we prophesy partially,
but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.

When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things. At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known.

So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
