American Bishop Michael Curry did the impossible and stole the show at the wedding of Megan Markle and Prince Harry early Saturday morning with a dramatic, amusing and poignant mediation about love that brought smiles to the staid crowd.
According to TMZ, Curry hails from an Episcopal church in Chicago and the black cleric made the most of his time before a massive international audience watching on TV with his joyful sermon about falling in love.
“If you don’t believe me, think about a time when you first fell in love,” heexplained. “The whole world seemed to center around you and your beloved. There is power. Power in love. Not just the romantic forms, but any form, any shape of love, there is a certain sense in which when you are loved and you know it, when someone cares for you and you know it, when you love and you show it, it actually feels right. There is something right about it. And there’s a reason for it. The reason has to do with the source. We were made by a power of love. And our lives were meant and are meant to be lived in that love, that’s why we are here. Ultimately, the source of love is God, himself.”

Trump may ‘undo his presidency’ — with Republicans backing impeachment: CNN’s conservative anchor
President Donald Trump's presidency is in peril as Republican lawmakers condemn the administration for green-lighting Turkey's ethnic cleansing of Kurds in northern Syria.
"President Trump this week set fire to the emoluments clause by announcing his own resort would host the G-7 summit. His Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, set fire to his boss’s innocence admitting on camera to the very thing Trump is being investigated for and possibly impeached over," CNN's S.E. Cupp said.
"Donald Trump has put the Republican Party through a lot. Most have gone willingly along with him -- kids in cages, a trade war, protecting Putin, honoring Kim Jong-Un, breaking the law, the lies, the insults, the fake news, the rape allegations. Defending the president over the indefensible has become something of a cottage industry for Republican lawmakers, few of whom have ever dared to call him out," she noted.
Boris Johnson said he would rather be ‘dead in a ditch’ than delay Brexit — but just asked to extend deadline
Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to write to Brussels seeking a Brexit deadline extension after MPs voted Saturday to demand he delay Britain's October 31 departure date.
In a phonecall with European Council President Donald Tusk after the vote, Johnson said he would send the letter mandated by MPs to seek more time, a EU source told AFP.
"The PM confirmed that the letter would be sent to Tusk today," the source said.
"Tusk will on that basis start consulting EU leaders on how to react. This may take a few days," he added.
Tusk said on Twitter that he was "waiting for the letter".
