Bishop Who Gave Powerful Sermon at Royal Wedding Speaks Out: ‘We Need Some Joy in This World’

Bishop Michael Curry‘s sermon at the royal wedding immediately went viral and earned much praise on social media, and Curry appeared on CNN hours later to discuss the ceremony.

Curry did an interview this afternoon with the Archbishop of Canterbury, who offered effusive praise for Bishop Curry’s sermon.

Curry himself explained he wanted to get across that “this love isn’t just simply a sentimental thing, this is actually a way of life, and it’s a way of life that actually makes a difference in people’s lives.”

He said of the new royal couple, “The way they looked at each other just sent a message of, ‘These people are in love for real.'”

He continued:

“If you could visually see a relationship, we saw that. And it was contagious in the room. I mean, the thing is you actually could feel it in the church, and people were happy. They were happy and joyful and thankful. And, you know what? We need some joy in this world.”
