Leo: within our grasp

Sunday, November 10, 2019
    Feast of Leo the Great, Bishop of Rome, 461
    The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.
    —1 Corinthians 15:46-49 (NIV)
    Invisible in His own nature [God] became visible in ours. Beyond our grasp, He chose to come within our grasp.
    ... Leo I “the Great” (390?-461), from St. Leo’s epistle to Flavian, in On Faith and the Creed, Charles Abel Heurtley, Parker and Co., 1886, p. 200 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 15:46-49; Luke 1:35; John 1:14; Rom. 8:3-4; Gal. 4:4-5; Phil. 2:5-7; Heb. 2:14-15; 4:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have made us part of Your family.
