Fifth Sunday in Easter

The Revelation 19:1,4-9 And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.” … from the Revelation to St. John the Divine. You will notice that this reading from the Revelation to St. John the Divine is filled with images of marriage. Listen to these words: “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready; to her it has been granted to be clothed with fine linen, bright and pure” And these: “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” The second one you have heard me say every Sunday as I present the Holy Sacrament to you. “Behold the Lamb of God. Behold him who takes away the sin of the world. Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”
