I am a writer who is doing research for a fictional work. In it there is a Catholic wedding ceremony. I was wondering where I could find information on vows used in modern Catholic weddings throughout the world and also information on Catholic vows used in earlier periods.
Also, I came across some vows from the Common Book of Prayer. They follow:
“With this ring I thee wed, with my body I thee worship, and with all my worldly goods I thee endow. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost (or Spirit).”
Were these ever Catholic vows or could they be used in a Catholic ceremony? I am confused because I first heard them used in a French Catholic ceremony, but their derivation seems to be Anglican.
