For God so loved the world

At adoration this week Rocky and I sat near the Infant of Prague statue. I looked and thought of how much God loves us. He gave His only Son up to :

Nails to destroy the use of His hands and feet

A crown made of thorns to pierce His head

Eyes swollen shut, vision bleared by sweat, dirt and blood,‎

The Holy Face so battered and bruised  that He must have been  almost unrecognizable

Dehydration, desperate thirst, cold chills, vomitus,  ribs screaming in pain with every ‎breath

Flesh shredded by the flagrum and a Body awash in a sea of His own blood

All this for love
I can't think of anything more awesome
