Natalia and Christian Reihe celebrate with a blessing of their marriage in St. Paul’s church, Athens. In the short homily, picking up phrase from a poem called ‘Someone’ Fr. Leonard developed the idea that love is about the heart in communion with the heart, and that this is how we connect to the heart of God’s love for us.
Natalia is Greek and Christian is German. The scripture reading was in German, then English, and the alternate verses of one of the hymns (Praise to the Lord, the Almighty) were sung boldly in German. Christian and Natalia attend St. Paul’s church.
