How does the sacrament of Marriage?
The sacrament of Marriage consists of two parts — betrothal and wedding. During a betrothal the priest hands brac lighted candles — a symbol of joy, warmth and cleanliness. Then he puts on rings first to the groom and then the bride, and three times — in the image of the Holy Trinity — replace them with the fingers of the intending spouses. After the betrothal the young are at the center of the Church and the new wedding towel is a symbol of chastity and conjugal fidelity. The priest asks them if their desire to become husband and wife, nor whether they were promised to someone else. After that, three prayers are spoken in which to seek God's blessing on marriage matching, recall the pious matrimonial alliances old and New Testaments. Brachysoma are borne on the crowns — the ornate crown, like Royal. The crown is the image of the crown of the Kingdom of Heaven and a symbol of the future victory over the passions, so marriage is akin to martyrdom. The priest is raising hands to God, says three times: "o Lord, our God, glory and honor crown them." — then reads passages from the Apostolic Epistles and the gospel, telling about the responsibilities of spouses and the blessing of the marriage in Cana of Galilee. Brought the Cup of wine — the symbol of life the Cup of joys and sorrows that the couple should share together for the rest of their days. The priest in three steps teaches young wine. Then he joins their hands and leads three times around the lectern during the singing of wedding hymns. The circle is a symbol of the fact that the Ordinance made forever, walking behind the priest — the way of service to the Church. At the end of the marriage the couple stand in the Royal doors of the altar, where the priest proclaims the polychronion and blesses the icons of the Saviour and the virgin. Then relatives and friends congratulate a new Christian family.
