Catholic nuns entering a convent consider themselves to be the literal brides of Christ.  During life, most dedicate themselves to prayer, contemplation and charitable service, and then upon death, they believe they unite finally with Jesus as a wife would her husband.  Amy Finkbeiner and Summer McCorkle both explore facets of this belief in their works. - Amy Talluto
