Spain: Blessing of Marriage
By Artur & Neta Beshaj, FFWPU Spain
We held a Blessing of Marriage ceremony on March 1, 2020, in Ronda Barcelona with the theme “Blessing for peace”.
We had about 40 participants, of which five were new guests, a couple invited by our brother from Andorra Luis Babi, a single person invited by our brother Antonio Fernandez and a couple who repeated their experience of blessing.
After a few words to welcome everybody, Antonio Fernandez and his son Kyung Min interpreted two songs to create a warm and joyful atmosphere, followed by a presentation by Santi Temprado speaking about the four realms of love and the ideal of the family.
We then explained the holy wine and holy water ceremonies and Hector and Dulce read the vows and offered the blessing prayer. One couple cut the cake and Eduard did the final Ok Mansei
Thanks to the support of all our brothers and sisters from the community of Barcelona, we were able to create a familiar and welcoming atmosphere. The guests were satisfied and eager to participate in future events.
We also want to thank the support of our national leader, Maryvonne Jamois for her words of congratulations and presence at this ceremony.
