Wedding readings

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  For weddings, is the Liturgy of the Word restricted to the texts listed in the OCM or are other Scripture texts allowed? I ask because Ruth 1:16-17 is popular in Ireland and seems to be becoming popular here in Australia.


A:  I treated the question in my book Light in the Darkness, where it comes up in relation to funerals. I conclude in that book that other passages could be used, but you will find people who disagree with me.
