Here comes the Bride

From the middle of the eighth century before the birth of the Lord Jesus, prophets dared to portray God as a bridegroom and Israel as his bride. Our Lord takes up the image presenting himself as the bridegroom and his people as the bride. In turn, St Paul develops the picture and his emphasis is on the holiness of the Church. Likewise St John in the book of Revelation stresses the holy Church. Food for thought: the Church is only as holy as is the least holy among her members.
