First, a little background. I'm Catholic my fiance is not. We are not having a Catholic service. So, the officiant that we chose sent us a sample ceremony for us to make edits on and change the ceremony sounds the way that it want it to.
I'm thinking about replacing the 1 Corinthians verse with a reading from the Book of Sirach.
"A loving partner is a safe shelter.
Whoever finds one has found a rare treasure.
A loving partner is something beyond price.
There is no measureing their worth.
A loving partner is a lifesaving remedy and those who love, for as a person is, so is their loved one.
This is the word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
My question: Is it okay to use this in place of Corinthians even though we are not having a Catholic cermeony?
