The Adventure Begins

Robert Runice, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who gave the homily at Prince Charles and Lady Diana’s wedding, had a marvelous word. He said,
“Here is the stuff of which fairy tales are made. The prince and princess on their wedding day. But fairy tales usually end at this point with the simple phrase, ‘they lived happily ever after.’ This may be because fairy tales regard marriage as an anticlimax after the romance of courtship. This is not the Christian view. Our faith sees the wedding day not as a place of arrival but the place where the adventure begins.”
