“So, marriage is not about money or expensive marriage ceremony. It is all about the couple being happy and contented with where God has placed them in life. So I see their holy sacrament today as a celebration of happy life, happy couples and happy family,” the Parish Priest of St. Moses Catholic Church said in a conversation with The Nation.
