An Irish Welcome

Céad Míle Fáilte friend and rover ...
Wherever you come from and whosoever you may be.
That's an Irish greeting and it means

you are welcome
a thousand times over.

Christ rejoices to see such a couple

How sweet the yoke that joins two of the faithful 
in the same hope, the same law, the same service!

Both are brethren in the service of the same Lord.

They are truly two in one and the same flesh.
And where the flesh is one, the spirit is one.

Together they pray ... 
instructing, encouraging and supporting each other in turn.

They are equal in the Church of God, 
equal at God's banquet, 
they share equally troubles, persecutions and consolations.

They hide nothing from each other,
they never avoid each other's company, 
they never cause each other pain.

Christ rejoices to see such a couple 
and He gives them His peace.

Where they are, there He is himself.
