The Divine Lamp

The unfolding of thy words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple…Make thy face shine upon thy servant, and teach me thy statutes

“This is hardly a paradox:  the unsophisticated reader of the Gospels, unfamiliar with the details of the historical, social, political, and religious circumstances of the little Jewish, Galilean world in which Jesus lived, is perhaps in a better position to understand the heart of the Gospel than many a scholarly specialist.  The latter, even if he is a believer, often has great difficulty seeing in what way precisely the message of Jesus, wholly rooted as it is in particular locality, is of a supreme universality.”-Henri Cardinal de Lubac, MORE PARADOXES
