Let us be joined with Christ the Bridegroom

COME, ye that are wounded by the sweetest divine love, let us all in the mystery of this bridal chamber be joined together with Christ the Bridegroom, as we cry out: Blessed art thou, the Lord of glory.

Bless the Lord, O My Soul
(Sergei Rachmaninov)

CHRIST, then, is the bridegroom, and the Church is his bride; the wedding guests are the individual believers. The wedding celebrations celebrate the time when Christ joined the holy Church to himself through the mystery of the Incarnation.

St Bede, priest-monk of Jarrow (d. 735). Homily 18, For the Second Sunday after Epiphany. My translation.
