Video – Fr Maximilian – The Cornerstone #24: Colossians 1:16-17
In this episode Fr. Maximilian Mary covers key points of Christian metaphysics based on St. Paul's Epistle to the Colossians. The language of the Holy Apostle reveals Christ as the Exemplary Cause of all creation: For in Him were created all things (Col 1:16); the Efficient Cause (secondarily) of all creation: All things have been created through Him (Col 1:17); and the Final Cause (secondarily) of all creation: All things have been created unto Him. (Col 1:17). Watch and discover why Christ is truly the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end of all things (cf. Apocalypse 21:6). Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last! (Apoc. 1:17).
