Espousals, Spiritual

Additional Links

The name given by mysical writers to designate that mystical union of love between God and some loved souls elevated to the ninth degree of contemplation. During the prayer of rapture God reveals His greatness to these particular spouses, adorns them with graces and gifts, and unites Himself to them as a sign or pledge of future spiritual marriage. This union, which is called espousal, is spiritual, for the soul is united to the Divine Spirit.
