Life isn’t fair! At least that’s what I often tell myself. But nearly as often I remind myself that I am unqualified to make that judgment – I do not really know what life is. I have faith in God’s perfect justice – if not in this life, then the next. This faith comforts me when I perceive injustice anywhere.
The deformity of Christ forms you. If he had not willed to be deformed, you would not have recovered the form which you had lost. Therefore he was deformed when he hung on the cross. But his deformity is our comeliness. In this life, therefore, let us hold fast to the deformed Christ.
