Be appeased, O Lord, by our humble prayers,
and in Your kindness assist all those who come
before you in the sacrament of matrimony.
May their union, joined by Your authority,
be preserved by Your help.
May we all continue our married lives
with You as our guiding light and ruled
by love, compassion and forgiveness.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You
for ever and ever.
