This week’s featured article is just a quote but it is a powerful one for me.

God only becomes fully comprehensible when one looks over at the Son. For example, what “almightiness” and “lordship of all” mean only becomes clear from a Christian point of view in the crib and the Cross. At this point simultaneously a new concept of power and a new concept of lordship and dominion are born. The highest power is demonstrated as the calm willingness to completely renounce all power: and we are shown that it is powerful, not through force, but only through the freedom of love which, even when it is rejected, is stronger than the exalted powers of earthly violence.”

— Pope Benedict XVI
