God, our loving Father, your love gives life to the world. 
Bless and make holy all human love, especially the life-giving love of husband and wife. 
May Your love fill the hearts and homes of all families, so that the world 
May enjoy the peace and happiness promised by Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
