“The bridegroom brings his dowry. And does not Christ enrich with gifts? Angels may marvel, dazzled by the Church’s wealth. He holds back nothing from her. All His attributes are her grand inheritance. His wisdom is hers to guide. His power is hers to uphold. His love is as the sun to cheer. His faithfulness and truth are her shield and buckler. His Spirit is poured down in unfailing measure to teach, to solace, and to bless her. His righteousness is hers, to be her spotless robe. His heavens are hers to be her home. His throne is hers, to be her seat. His glory is hers, to be her crown. His eternity is hers, that she may joy for ever. Happy the soul, which responds, all this I steadfastly believe!” Henry Law (1797-1884)
