Monday Musings - How Much Are You Worth?

As we gaze lovingly upon the infant Christ in the manger this Christmas, let us not forget, as St. Anthony of Padua reminds us, why He took on human flesh and what torture awaits our loving Savior - Who died in order that we might have eternal life:

"Christ Who is your life is hanging before you, so that you may look at the cross as in a mirror. There you will be able to know how mortal were your wounds, that no medicine other than the Blood of the Son of God could heal…

Nowhere other than looking at himself in the mirror of the cross can man better understand how much he is worth."

(From the Sermons of St. Anthony of Padua)
