There's a lot that goes into a wedding day — a venue, a gown, hair and makeup. But imagine if you were marrying Jesus Christ. That ups the ante a little bit, eh?
A theology teacher at a Catholic high school in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has done just that. Jessica Hayes was consecrated to virginity during a ceremony Aug. 15. The Diocese of Fort Wayne - South Bend says Hayes was given a veil and ring to show she was a bride of Christ during the ceremony.
Consecrated virginity allows a woman to "live in the world" while giving herself fully to Jesus Christ.
