The Kucinich's First Wedding Anniversary

Our First Wedding Anniversary, Elizabeth and Congressman Dennis Kucinich
Aug 21, 2006

Dear Friends,

This week marks for us our First Wedding Anniversary, a joyous occasion on which we would like to share with you this special picture taken on our wonderful Wedding Day on August 21, 2005. We recited the Prayer of Saint Francis to each other during our marriage ceremony. This beautiful prayer embodies the vision of our union. Our first year together has been filled with great love, adventure, and devotion to duty.

Dennis continues his work dedicated to workers' rights, universal health care, economic justice, prosperity, and peace. Elizabeth, who only came to America in April of 2005, is now working on a number of local and international projects in both Cleveland and Washington. Her areas of endeavor include environmental awareness, sustainable economic development, education, and creating a new discussion for peace. She also works closely with Annette Lantos, wife of Congressman Lantos and the Congressional Human Rights Caucus at the House of Representatives.

We both share a deep commitment to service and are proud to serve and represent you and the families of Ohio's 10th District in the United States House of Representatives.

We are so grateful for your support.

Dennis and Elizabeth

No, that's not a tear. I just have a piece of sand in my eye.

7. Does anyone know which St. Francis Prayer?
St. Francis is my favorite Saint, but most of the prayers that I know from him are the ones for my four footed furry family members.

And of course his "Instrument of Peace" prayer.

I was wondering if anyone knows which St. Francis prayer that Dennis and Elizabeth said to each other. That is truly beautiful.

10. Oh, Thank you so much
It is the "Intrument of Peace" prayer, this is my favorite. What a wonderful prayer to say to one another on their wedding day.

Instrument of Peace
In the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi


Lord,
make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred,
let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love;
for it is in giving
that we receive;
it is in pardoning
that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying
that we are born to eternal life.

16. What a profoundly beautiful vow.
What a world it would be if the fearless leaders of our planet's nations walked that path.

14. Now that Elizabeth has an "in" with Annette Lantos--
--I wonder if Dennis will be able to move Tom (for whom nothing Israel ever does is wrong)on the issue of a two state solution?
