Times, Closed

Seasons of the year during which there are certain restrictions concerning marriage. Formerly a marriage at Mass was not allowed from the beginning of Advent until after Epiphany, and during Lent and the octave of Easter. The present code of law does not forbid a marriage Mass at any time; it prohibits the nuptial blessing during Advent and on Christmas Day, and during Lent and on Easter Sunday, but with the bishop's permission the blessing may be given even during those times.
