A good time was had by all

This past weekend was spent on the road going to a wedding in Spirit Lake (aka Okoboji), IA. I drove down to Sioux Falls in the morning and drove with another seminarian to Spirit Lake. The groom was in the seminary with us for a few years and ended up discerning that priesthood was not in God's will for his life. He and his wife will be living in Minneapolis, he's still in law school and she will be working as a hotel manager in Minneapolis. It was great to be able to see them get married and it was also great to see some friends that I had not seen for a while. One of the most remarkable things about this wedding was that during the rehearsal, the groom mentioned that preparing for marriage has been an experience of dying to himself. Before the wedding he was telling me how nervous he was and he recognized that if he was not nervous, then there was something not right. He told us that when we are about ready to be ordained we will have the same emotions going through us. Ad multos annos John and Elizabeth Sandy!
