I'm back over at Patheos' Catholic portal, at the blog "Summa This, Summa That" -- this time talking about the dignity of the human person. Here's a snippet:
The body of Jesus was not some kind of disposable earthly transport vehicle. No. Jesus completely united himself to humanity in a permanent way.
It is particularly relevant to the “respect life” issues -- to respect the life of the body and care for the dignity of the human person in every circumstance of natural life. For the body is also a temple of the Holy Spirit (Cf. 1 Cor 3: 16). The most powerful sign we have of that is that Jesus, God Himself, took on a body.
The humanity of Jesus signals to us the deep meaning of the human person. “Christ by his incarnation has united himself in some fashion with every person. (Gaudium et Spes, par. 22.)”Read the full article over there.
