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 abode… 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
