Congratulations to their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

It must have been a wonderful day. Although I only managed to see some highlights on American TV, it was sufficient for me to see the couple so happy and relaxed with each other and the celebrations of the British people on this great day to make one proud to be British and to pledge one's prayers for the future King and Queen of the United Kingdom.

My prayer for them would be the following from the Catholic Church's Rite of Marriage:
Father, keep them always true to your commandments.
Keep them faithful in marriage and let them be living examples of Christian life.
Give them the strength which comes from the gospel so that they may be witnesses of Christ to others.
Bless them with children and help them to be good parents.
May they live to see their children's children.
And, after a happy old age, grant them fullness of life with the saints in the kingdom of heaven.

UPDATE: now watching highlights at BBC iplayer. The wedding service is truly wonderful and reflects dignity and authentic Christian teaching on marriage.
