Crowning (Marriage)

The Mystery of Crowning is the rite that blesses Christian Marriage. Just as priests, prophets, and kings were crowned in the Old Testament, Christian couples are crowned in the ritual action of marriage to demonstrate the special vocation of married life and the sacrificial mission of being a spouse.

The Mystery of Crowning establishes the foundation of family life, thereby rooting it in the life of the Church. Because the family is the "domestic Church" and the chief means by which people are evangelized the Church values the Mystery of Crowning among her most sacred rites.
