imperfect

We beheld his glory

And the word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace und truth. (John 1:14)
Thanks to Jesus Christ, the glory of God came into the flesh and dwelt full of grace and truth bodily among men. And thanks to his resurrection from the dead, God's Word can also become flesh in us through the love of God which the Holy Spirit pours into the heart. And if we share this grace, we can also exult in the hope of the glory of God to come.

God's choice

God is the same yesterday, today and eternally. Without him, our existence would have no meaning. When God decided to manifest his perfection, he chose to create man in the shape of an earthen vessel to give the light of the knowledge of his glory (cf. 2 Corinthians 4:6). God had no need to express his existence by creating an imperfect world and a man who languishes to be perfect. God acts by free choice, without particular reason. That is why the Scriptures never recall for what “reason” God created the world, but for what “purpose”.
