This may very properly be regarded as the heavenly Bridegroom's state-visit to his Bride, the Church; when he will find her in the perfection of beauty, ready to receive him. It is to the celebration of this event, that St. John in the Apocalypse refers, when he says that he heard the voice of a great multitude, saying, "Allelujah: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
