It Is All About Him

And to affirm Aramis's superb reflection on love, marriage, and looking deeply into the beloved's eyes to see Christ reflected there, I remind you, gentle reader, that our Almighty God knew that we would need - absolutely need - His Son Incarnate, the Word made flesh (Jn 1,14). This "scandal of particularity" began with His Chosen People, the Jews to whom He gave the Law. Then the fulfillment of the Law was born of Mary, our Savior and our God.
Secondly, I recently viewed the History Channel's Time Machine: The Real Face of Jesus? on researchers' efforts to show us a 3-D image of Our Lord from the Shroud of Turin. It's not a bad effort: the guy's pompadour and the ridiculous incoherent speculation about Gnosticism just about turned me off, but the pay-off at the end is worth the wait. And the physicist's hypothesis about the edge of the Shroud is nye-on breathtaking. That's all I'll say ...

Thirdly, the Vatican Information Service announces that the Holy Father's second volume of Jesus of Nazareth has gone to the publisher.

Remember and never forget: it is all about Jesus. All of it - our Judge and our Hope, Who will not leave us comfortless and pours out His eucharistic grace through His Church's sacramental life. Deo gratias. +
