Arras is a Filipino Tradition:
"We are now going to have the coin ceremony. Can I have the coins please (coin bearer________)
The coins are a reminder of good stewardship for all couples; that they will mutually support each other, their children and the world around them."
(As the couple exchange the coins):
______/_____ (Repeat): Take these coins as a sign of my commitment to share our gifts in life and as a pledge of my total dedication and constant concern for your welfare.
The other says (Repeat): I accept and treasure your gifts. Let us together always share these blessings.
May you be granted not only material possessions, but abundant spiritual strength, which these coins symbolize, so that you may use them to bless and honour others. Hold the coins in your hands as a sign that your blessings will no longer be held separately, but together.
