Cupio dissolvi is a Latin locution used in the Vulgate translation of the Paul's epistle to Philippians 1:23-4. The phrase, literally meaning "I wish to be dissolved", expresses the Christian desire to leave the earthly life and join Christ in eternal life. [1111]


According to myth, Cupid was the son of Mercury, the winged messenger of the gods, and Venus, the goddess of love. [1] But despite his infant form, that baby, widely known these days as Cupid, began his mythological life as a man who had more power than any god. [1]


He appeared as a handsome youth in early art and poetry, but [11111] Cupid is a minor character who serves mostly to set the plot in motion. [111] Despite his colorful and complicated past, hopeless romantics everywhere relish the notion of a mischievous yet well-intentioned tyke (one who now uses his power for good instead of evil). [1111]


Although some literature portrayed Cupid as callous and careless, [11] when wounded by his own weapons, he experiences the ordeal of love. [111] Images of Cupid and Psyche in love are a way of expressing the idea that being in love transforms us as people. [11111]
