“The person of Jesus is so great and precious a good because he alone fully corresponds to the human thirst for happiness.” (Carron, Disarming Beauty)
I love the idea of Jesus as a person. So often I get caught up in the philosophical nature of this religious entity we call Jesus. But Jesus learned to walk, talk, and was probably (definitely?) potty trained. He ate with his family, learned a trade and had friends.
He shared in my day to day doings. All of the things that I do, or long to do that bring me happiness, he did too. And I just have to remember to look for the person of Jesus in everything and remember that this faith I try so hard to live out is all about reality.
Does this bring you as much comfort as it does me?
