Charles PéguyWhy did He come? And why did the world come into being? One must believe that I have a certain importance, I who am nothing…. How is it possible that I am not great if I’ve messed up so many things in the world, disordered so many things in the world, and such a great world, at that? If I’ve started such a tragic history? A God, God went out of His way, God sacrificed Himself for me. This is Christianity.
Charles Péguy, Veronica
This was one of the Good Friday meditations for the Way of the Cross that Communion and Liberation led on the National Mall with Cardinal Wuerl this year. I thought it did a great job of capturing the heart of Christianity, and is fitting during both Lent and Easter.
