The Rite of Betrothal

Fr Nichols, FSSP, celebrates the Rite of Betrothal for Matthew and Teresa, engaged to be married this summer.  When a Christian man and woman intend to pledge themselves in marriage, it is praiseworthy and in accord with ancient ecclesiastical custom to have the engagement solemnized and blessed by the Church.  Here Fr Nichols takes the two ends of his stole and in the form of a cross places them over the clasped hands of the couple to bear witness to their solemn proposal and to declare them betrothed in the name of the Most Holy Trinity.
