“Oh, darling, this place is wonderful!”
“Isn’t it? It’s the best restaurant in the city,” the newly married bridegroom responded as he reached over and took his new bride’s hand in his, “it’s a great way to end an awesome day.”
He continued, “You should did look wonderful in your dress! I didn’t think you could look any more beautiful. But today you were stunning.”
“Thank you,” the bride said as she blushed. “Wasn’t the wedding just lovely! And the amount of people that attended even surprised me. Every seat was taken.”
“I can’t imagine it going any better,” answered the bridegroom.
There was an intimate moment as the two lovers looked into each others eyes. The bridegroom finally broke the silence and gently asked, “are you ready to go to the hotel room for the night?”
“Yes, let’s go. Do you have the keys Jesus,” the bride asked?
“Yes, my dear bride – my dear Church – here is yours – room 2041. I will be staying in 2043. Can I expect to see you again at breakfast in the morning?”
……Why does it seem so natural for the Church not to be intimate with Jesus?
