Patristic Quote of the Day

The Father made a marriage feast for His Son by joining the church to Him through the mystery of His incarnation. The womb of the Virgin who bore Him was the bridal chamber of this bridegroom... He truly came forth like a bridegroom from His bridal chamber who, as God incarnate, left the inviolate womb of the Virgin to unite the church to Himself.—Pope St. Gregory the Great, Homily 38 on the Holy Gospels
