Bishop Henry of Calgary tells couples about the importance of having a relationship with Christ and forgiveness

Wedding Rings

Calgary,  Alberta, Canada -- More than 150 people renewed their marriage vows at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Calgary on February 11, 2012.

The Marriage Renewal event was presided over by Bishop Frederick Henry of the Diocese of Calgary, along with visiting priest Fr. Denis Tassé LC, St. Michael´s pastor Fr. Julian Studden, and associate pastor Fr. Nathan Siray.  Music during Mass was provided by Ron and Christine Lambert and Brian and Catherine Shamber.

During the homily, Bishop Henry reflected on the reality of marriage and how much work it takes to keep a marriage alive.  He began with a discussion of Jesus’ first miracle at the wedding at Cana, and went on to say that one of the main components of a successful marriage is forgiveness.  He said there is no other path to wholeness than forgiveness and the celebration of Mass.

Bishop Henry said the forgiveness found in the Eucharist will help couples overcome the difficulties they can experience in marriages.  He told the husbands and wives to attend Mass as much as possible, especially when faced with the need to forgive.

“He is the mediator that restores all things that are lost,” said Bishop Henry.  “When we hold fast to Christ, we can begin to see miracles in marriages.”
