Always & Forever

The Proposal

A woman’s body is a temple to give life like a tabernacle holding the Body of Christ that Jesus gave to us to live. That is why a man kneels before a woman when he proposes–just as we kneel before the tabernacle–to show this temple of life-giving that he respects it and he will give himself to it forever. –Jackie Angel

Tonight I was inspired by that line Jackie said during her talk to teens, and how pertinent it is to me, right now. Nineteen months ago in this chapel (pictured above), Jonathan asked me once again to be his girlfriend. And almost 19 months after, on the feast of St. Joseph the Worker and the first day of the month of Mary, he knelt before me in this same chapel (“Wedding Chapel of Mary & Joseph”) and asked me to be his wife.
