Today’s first reading from Isaiah included the words

as the bridegroom rejoices in his bride,
so will your God rejoice in you

which found a resonance in our opening hymn:

From heaven he came and sought her
to be his holy bride.
With his own blood he bought her,
and for her life he died.
and our postcommunion motet, with the (Latin) words

Come and eat my bread,
and drink the wine I have poured out for you.

evoked the wine flowing in abundance at the wedding feast at Cana, recounted in today’s Gospel reading from St John.
