Actually I did hear something to that effect a while ago - so we shouldn't be too quick to dismiss this. That said, St. Catherine did write in one of her letters (Letter 221, to Sister Bartolomea della Seta): "Ben vedi tu che tu sei sposa, e che egli t'ha sposata, e te e ogni creatura; e non con anello d' argento, **ma con anello della carne sua" (Well seest thou that thou art a bride, and that He has wedded thee and every creature, not with a ring of silver, **but with the ring of His flesh), and she did mention in another letter that "Christ in His circumcision showed that He would wed the whole human race."
Hmmm ... I wouldn't read quite so much into it.
The 'wedding' could easily refer to the sealing of the New Covenant between God and man by Christ's shedding of His blood for mankind - a process begun in the circumcision, it is true, but completed on the Cross.
And note 'WOULD wed', since the process was not complete until the crucifixion. Not 'has wed' as it would be if His circumcision was the focal point.
