"He had no form or majesty that we should look at him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him" (Isaiah 53:2). Sacrifice has no beauty; it holds no attraction. Sacrifice is Christ who suffers and dies. He is the meaning of our life. Our entire life is in view of something greater: God. We live for you, O Christ, whose face we seek." ~Fr. Luigi Giussani
O Christ ever greater, may we always seek Your face, whether it be covered with spittle and blood or radiant with risen glory. Amen.
