My husband and I got married on August 15, which in the Catholic church is the Feast of the Assumption. For a part of the ceremony, we chose the hymn Holy Is Your Name - a setting of the Magnificat to the tune of Wild Mountain Thyme, arranged by David Haas. It was appropriate for the feast day, and it's also a hymn we really love.
Fast forward, one year later: hubs and I have been responsible for providing the music at Sunday masses for most of the summer. August 15 fell on a Sunday this year and we sang Holy Is Your Name for the Feast of the Assumption. We privately enjoyed a lovely reminder of our wedding one year ago.
After mass, a woman came up to us and told us that she was completely moved by that hymn.
Hubs had been feeling a little under the weather that day, and was concerned the whole time about sounding raspy. But none of that mattered anymore. That woman made our whole day.
Happy anniversary, honey!
