Union with Christ, Like a Marriage, Sealed with the ‘Kiss’ of the Spirit

“Oh happy kiss, and wonder of amazing self-humbling which is not a mere meeting of lips, but the union of God with man. The touch of lips signifies the bringing together of souls. But this conjoining of natures unites the human with the divine and makes peace between earth and heaven.… “For he himself is our peace, who made the two one” (Eph. 2: 14).” -Bernard of Clairvaux
