Often we hear the greater church referred to as the bride of Christ. It is in partaking of Jesus – present to us in bread and wine – that this love is consummated, and we experience him manifest not only among us, but also ‘in’ us. The more we participate in this act of love, the more we are transformed into his likeness, another sort of epiphany, making Jesus manifest in the world.
