It is a powerful homily on what can be achieved by love when it is exercised in the world.
Delivered with an evangelical fervour.
And it does acknowledge at one point our origins in the creative love of God.
But it wasn't a homily about marriage.
Let alone a homily about Christian marriage.
Which is unfortunate.
Especially when you are preaching at a wedding.
Between a baptised man and a baptised woman.
In a Christian chapel.
