What we have in common we have in common with
Jesus, Who is not just
Lord and God and Saviour
(big as that might be) but also
the Creator, Demiurge,
maker of the Universe and more importantly
(much more importantly)
fashioner of consciousness and who therefore,
planted in Mary's womb, fashioned His own
all too human consciousness, a will
for Himself capable of opposing
God's will, of yielding to
the Great Temptations -
our greatness, our distinctiveness, being
that within us which is
pitiable, God, in Mary's womb, fashioned His own
weakness of will, and so
(one might enquire) was Satan,
camped there in that
unusually inhospitable place,
watching and wondering
what on earth was going on?
