New page created today on The Way to Nourish for Life [called "Let's Be Fruitful"]  to focus on the riches of a fruit-filled diet,  as well as a Spirit-filled life!   So how fitting, therefore, to begin with the words of Mother Teresa... http://thewaytonourishforlife.wordpress.com/

Woman Marries Bridge in Catholic Ceremony

Image
I'm only half-kidding. Australian woman Jodi Rose did in fact marry Le Pont du Diable bridge (also known as the Devil's Bridge) on June 17, 2013. The union was not blessed by a Catholic priest, however. It was blessed instead by the mayor of the neighboring town. For those who are wondering, here are five reasons why the Catholic Church would never have allowed marriage between this woman and this bridge.

1. The bridge never consented.
Ms. Rose took advantage of the bridge's inanimate nature and married it even though the bridge could not possibly express its consent to the marriage. (Catechism, sec. 1626 )
2. The bride never agreed to be faithful.
"He understands that I love other bridges -- and men -- ours is a love that embraces the vagaries of life, as materialised in the swirling currents of the river that flow beneath his magnificent body," stated Ms. Rose on her blog. She clearly refused to pledge herself solely to her spouse. (Catechism, sec. 1646)
