The Reign of Christ. Book Two. Chapter Twenty: The Celebration Of Nuptials

Your Majesty acknowledges that here also his authority and law are required in order to bring it about that his subjects so come and are present at the consecration of their nuptials, and give their attention to everything said to them by the priest, as becomes those who come into the presence and stand in the sight of God Almighty and Christ the Savior, and hear or invoke him through his minister; and the priests, as befits true ministers of Christ and faithful stewards of the mysteries of God, should read, exhort, and pray all these things with utmost dedication.
