A religious gift for a wedding may seem an original idea, but marriage, even if it is natural law, is for a Christian more than that: it has been elevated to the rank of sacrament. The purpose of this sacrament is to help the Christian couple in the generous reception of children, in the fidelity to any test until death. In the cultural and social context of today, living marriage in a Christian spirit (indissolubility, fidelity, welcoming children) is not self-evident. Thus a religious gift is very suitable to help new spouses to rely on supernatural and spiritual means, prayer and grace, to live the marriage according to a Christian spirit in fidelity to the 10 commandments.
As a gift for a Christian wedding, an icon or statue that represents the Holy Family of Nazareth is an ideal gift. Always in connection with the Holy Family of Nazareth, we can offer a statue or icon of St. Joseph: St. Joseph is the foster father of Jesus and the head of the holy family to protect his wife the Most Holy Virgin Mary and the 'Child Jesus. We have not included in this category "Wedding Gift" all the statues of Saint Joseph for sale on our religious shop. But you can see them by going in the category "statues of saint joseph".
Another great gift idea for a wedding, is to offer an icon of the twenty mysteries of the Rosary. This religious icon can be displayed in the family oratory where every day the family must gather for the rosary. As Pius XII said, a family who prays is a family that lives; and Saint Pius X: "If you want peace to reign in your family, pray the Rosary every day with your family".
A statue or icon of the Sacred Heart is also a perfect wedding gift. Because of the promise made by Jesus himself to Saint Margaret, an icon of the Sacred Heart is really the ideal gift: "I will bless the houses where the image of my Sacred Heart will be exposed and honored. "
As a wedding gift you can also offer an icon of the patron saints of the two new spouses.
These gift ideas for a wedding are not exhaustive and you can very well choose a gift idea according to the tastes of the new couple. For example, if they have a great devotion to Our Lady, you can offer them a beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary.
