The Uneaten Bridegroom
We do Thee homage O Divine Bridegroom who art abandoned here upon Thine altar. Thou beholdest O God how sinners have abandoned and rejected Thee in favor of their empty pleasures. Even through rejection, Thou dost still sacrifice Thyself to the Father for the conversion of sinners. Even through rejection, Thou dost still offer sinners Thy love and Thy Very Body, O Uneaten Bridegroom, to strengthen them unto life eternal for even through rejection thou art truly Our Bridegroom and Thou truly dost offer Thyself as Our Bridegroom to the Father for our salvation. Raise sinners from the dead O Just One for just as death could not contain Thee O Ressurected Bridegroom, so too no illegitimate life of sin will be able to contain sinners once they are filled with the honey of Divine Love. Give me to eat Thy honey from the bee O God who beholds all! Give unto sinners honey from the rock to raise them to new life!
