Ss. Chrysanthi et Dariae Martyres / S Chrysanthe and Darius: "live in love"

... as Christ loved us and handed himself over for us as a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.
-- Eph 4:32–5:8

To the offering of Christ are united not only the members still here on earth, but also those already in the glory of heaven. In communion with and commemorating the Blessed Virgin Mary and all the saints, the Church offers the Eucharistic sacrifice. In the Eucharist the Church is as it were at the foot of the cross with Mary, united with the offering and intercession of Christ.
-- CCC 1370
