Renewal of Vows

Saying ‘I do’ again… and again… and again…February is the month of “Pag-ibig”, or now popularly connoted as “Febibig”. As our parish celebrates this month as Jubilee for Couples, a Thanksgiving Mass and Renewal of Marriage Vows was held last Saturday, February 18, 2017.120 couples registered to say ‘Ido’ again on this sweet and special occasion. The Thanksgiving mass was presided by our pastor, Rev. Msgr. Dennis Odiver.

The Renewal of Vows happened after the Gospel proclamation. Msgr. Dennis asked the couples to face each other, hold hands and jokingly asked them to make sure they are holding their spouse’s hands and not other’s. The rite was in Filipino language, which makes it more romantic. During the homily, Msgr. Dennis related the love a married couple share with the love of God for us, His children. Regardless of countless books, magazines or articles written on how to have a meaningful and successful marriage, no example is greater than that of the love of our Almighty Father for us, His best and most favorite creation. Fr. Allan sang the song – “Ikaw” by Yeng Constantino, with the able assistance of the Marriage Encounter Choir, headed by Mr. James Tan. After the mass, the ‘You may now kiss the bride’ statement gathered laughter, giggles and so much “kilig” from parishioners, especially from the couples who have God as witness in their renewal of everlasting love for each other. A simple reception after the mass, sponsored by the Family and Life Ministry and the Marriage Encounter group, brought back the momentous occasion shared by the married couples when they first said ‘I do’. Cutting of the cake and wine toasts, a typical part of any wedding receptions, along with games and awarding of longest and youngest wedded couple were some of the highlights of the celebration.
