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
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.
