Bishop Michael Curry Calls Appearance at Royal Wedding 'A Real Blessing'

Playing Bishop Michael Curry Hopes His Royal Wedding Fame Makes World Better

Bishop Michael Curry is still spreading the love days after gaining worldwide notoriety with his emphatic remarks during the royal wedding

"It was a real blessing," he told Inside Edition about being a part of the ceremony. "I hope it was a blessing for them and the whole world."

Three days after he captivated audiences with his electrifying message, the minister gave Inside Edition his take on the newlyweds.

“They were just gracious and kind and wonderful — they really were — but they're so happy to be married," he said. "They're in love with each other."

The popular preacher also appeared on the "Today" show, where he did the weather. 

His nearly 14-minute sermon was the most tweeted about moment of the wedding, with a jaw-dropping 40,000 tweets per minute.  

Bishop Curry became such a sensation that he was even parodied on "Saturday Night Live." He told Inside Edition he would love to be a part of the show one day.  

“I loved it! I loved it!" he said of "SNL" cast member Kenan Thompson's impression of him. "I couldn't have done it better myself. All they have to do is call me." 

Of his newfound fame, he says he hopes it makes a positive impact. 

"I hope it helps to make a better world I really do," he said. "God bless you guys."

The Chicago-born Episcopalian bishop was surprised by the invitation to preach during the wedding. He said the call didn't come from the couple, but from the Archbishop of Canterbury.  

During his appearance on the “Today” show, Bishop Curry was asked about bringing up slavery in his speech before the monarchy.

He said that everything he said was given to church officials ahead of the wedding and they knew what he was going to say. 

Many members in attendance seemed uncomfortable with Curry’s impassioned call for love and discussions on slavery and he said it was part of the plan.

“Episcopalians aren’t known for being loud and raucous in church, but I’ve learned to be able to hear an 'amen' by looking in their eyes," he said. "And I was looking in the eyes of people who were there and they were doing quiet British 'amen.'"
