Ave Maria!

In this episode Fr. Maximilian Mary turns to Sacred Scripture to proclaim that in God's eternal designs before the creation of the world Jesus Christ was willed by God to be His Temple, to be perfectly filled with His glory and return perfect glory to the Triune God in His Sacred Humanity. What is more, we are called to be "living stones" (1 Pt. 2:4-5) of this Temple with Christ Jesus as the "chief cornerstone" (Eph. 2:20ff).

Ave Maria!

    A note for those who are interested. I mentioned Archbishop Sheen’s reference to piercing the veil of Christ’s flesh in this talk. It is actually a Scriptural allusion:

    “But one of the soldiers opened his side with a lance, and immediately there came out blood and water.” (Jn. 19:34).

    “Since then, brethren, we are free to enter the Holies in virtue of the blood of Christ, a new and living way which he inaugurated for us through the veil–that is, his flesh…” (Heb. 10:19; cf. Heb. 9:3).

    God bless…
