Every Mass a wedding

Filed under: Lent 2012 — komonchak @ 8:10 am

Concerning the Bride, let us see what He says; that you, when you know the Bridegroom and the Bride, may not without reason come to the marriage. For every celebration is a celebration of marriage: the Church’s nuptials are being celebrated. The King’s Son is about to marry a wife, and that King’s Son is Himself a King; and the guests frequenting the marriage are themselves the Bride. It’s not as in an ordinary marriage where some are guests, and another is she that is being married; in the Church they that come as guests, if they come to good purpose, become the Bride. For all the Church is Christ’s Bride. (Augustine on I John, Hom. 2, 2; PL 35, 1990)
