An adorable crucifix

To which add:
Sooner or later, the enfleshed image of the God Who Is Love will lay down His life for his friends. That crucifix on your rosary is an image of perfect love.

But that image of perfect love on the end of your rosary is only a crucifix because the Word became flesh in a world where we crucify people.

My point, such as it is, is that Jesus' willingness to die for us isn't a reason to love Him so much as it is a sign or symptom of what makes Him -- and the Father Whose Image He Is -- so lovable.
