Reblog: Cosmic Christ, Cosmic Humanity

Sometimes when I see the ugliness of the world, I have to remind myself of this. That Christ is the head of creation is both a challenge and a call. It wakes me up when I might slip into apathy, and reaches out to me with the urgency of a lover when all I can see are darkness and ugliness and pain.

EdithA humanity united in Christ and through Christ is the temple in which the Triune God has his abodeā€¦ And as the head of humankind, which combines in itself the higher [spiritual] and the lower [corporeal] reaches of being, Christ is the head of creation in its totality.
Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
