Nuptial Acclamation

I saw this link on Rocco’s Twitter feed about the use of the Sunday feast’s readings for Pope Francis’ “Nuptial” Mass. I don’t have a problem with that: a focus on Christ, the Cross, and his sacrifice is very apt for a wedding occasion. In the hands of a good preacher, I’m sure the connections will be thoughtful.

On page 27 of the worship aid, I noticed a musical acclamation following the Nuptial Blessing.

Il cantore:
Benediciamo il Signore

L’assemblea:
A lui onore e gloria nei secoli

The invocation to bless the Lord as a response to the blessing of the couples. Much more fitting than unity candle romantic songs, I suppose.
