“I am all at once what Christ is since He was what I am.” As I was preparing my homily for last Sunday I was amazed at this line in one of the commentaries. It comes from a poem by Gerard Manly Hopkins. How can I be what Christ is? How was He what I am? In the creed that we profess together at Mass every Sunday we say: “For us men and for our salvation, He came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary and became man.” Jesus was fully human.
