Pope Benedict XVI on the Face of the Infant Christ

| | Comments (1)


The mystery of the Vultus Christi, the adorable Face of Christ, recurs frequently in the discourses of Pope Benedict XVI. In his December 21st address to the children of the Italian Catholic Action Movement the Holy Father said:

Nel volto del piccolo Gesù
contempliamo il volto di Dio
che non si rivela nella forza o nella potenza,
ma nella debolezza e nella fragile costituzione di un bambino.

"In the face of the little Jesus
we contemplate the face of God,
which is not revealed through force or power,
but in weakness and the fragile constitution of a child."


Thank you May we ask the gift of forgivness.
