Great post from Reinkat today. This simple, short post tells me so much.

Check out her previous post on “Sacred Geometry” too. This is true Catholic culture that our religious minds are thirsty for.

Originally posted on reinkat:

Before the Incarnation, there were no images made of God.  In fact, it was expressly forbidden.  But because God took on flesh and became one of us, He then had a specific appearance in time and place, and thus it is permitted for us to make an icon of God as He appears in Jesus Christ.  It has been said this way:

The inconceivable is conceived in the womb of a virgin.  

The immeasurable became 3 cubits high; the unqualifiable acquires a quality; the undefinable stands up, sits down and lies down; He who is everywhere is put into a crib.

He who is above time gradually reaches the age of 12; He who is formless appears with the shape of a man and the incorporeal enters into a body.

Therefore, the same is describable and indescribable.

—from the writings of the Desert Fathers:  St. Theodore the Studite

Gospel Reflection: Why Won’t God Do What We Expect? 14

People today are no different than they were 2,000 years ago.  We naturally want things to be verified before we assent to them. This natural human disposition even applies to what we expect from God. After all, “God is all powerful and all knowing, so why does he not reveal himself to us clearly, when he obviously could?”

“If you truly are God, save yourself and come down from that cross!” — God’s ways do not always correspond to human expectations

In today’s Gospel, Jesus reveals that he knows our thoughts: “Do here in your native place the things that we heard were done in Capernaum.” More…

It’s no surprise that the Obama administration has approved the sale of the abortifacient drug Plan-B in vending machines on college campuses.
