Wedding Prayer to Our Lady of Cana

O holy Mary, Theotokos, Mater Dei, bearer of the Incarnate Word, Mother of God,
at the wedding feast of Cana, you sought the help of your Divine Son, Jesus the Christ,
to assist a young couple in distress.
In a marvelous way, your intercession prompted the Lord to change water into choice wine,
to gladden their hearts and to raise human marriage to the sacred dignity of a sacrament, Holy Matrimony.

We humbly ask you now to interecede for [Name] our bride and [Name] our bridegroom.
As your son to fill them with the sweet wine of gladness in their love, sacrifice and commitment.
As they live out their lives together, receive and rear their children and contribute to the good of the Church and society,
may they always look to you, holy Mary, as a model of what it means to bring Christ into our world through word and action,
attitude and choice.  We ask all this through Christ, who is Lord forever and ever.  Amen
