Royal Wedding tidbits
I got up this morning to watch the royal wedding, partly because I had watched Prince William’s parents tie the knot years ago.
I have to admit, my first impressions were whimsical: I loved all the hats the women wore and I thought both Prince William and his brother Prince Harry looked handsome in their uniforms.
Of course, I thought Kate looked lovely and her wedding dress was beautiful.
Then I was curious about the wedding ceremony itself and I was touched by it.
I was struck by the regal voice of Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams. I’ve seen quite a few pictures of the man but never heard him speak.
Most inspiring was the homily delivered by the Bishop of London Richard Chartres.
What’s interesting is the great quote that he used to begin his sermon: “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”
Chartres said it is a quote by St. Catherine of Siena whose feast day is today.
That caught my attention because I happened to do a story recently about Sister Nancy Murray who portrays St. Catherine of Siena in a one-woman play. Murray, who is the sister of comedian Bill Murray, presented the play as a fund-raiser earlier this month for Sacred Heart Catholic School in El Reno.
Anyway, hearing the quote by St. Catherine was a pleasant surprise this morning and very apropos for the wedding homily.
In fact, the entire sermon was inspired.
