ST. PETER - ONE OF US
I sometimes imagine a dialogue between God and Humanity where we complain to Him.
HUMANITY: God, you are too far above us! How can we ever hope to be perfect as You are perfect?
GOD: I understand. So I shall become one of you. I will be the Man Jesus and I will show you how you are to live a perfect human life.
HUMANITY: But that isn’t fair! Jesus is a Divine Person! We are mere creatures. How could we, your creation, possible imitate someone so perfect?
GOD: I understand. So I shall give you the Blessed Virgin. She is no God. She is a creature. And she shall be your model of human holiness.
HUMANITY: But that isn’t fair! She has no Original Sin. We are fallen creatures! How can we base our lives on her-
GOD: FINE! You can’t deal with perfection! Then I’ll send to you the biggest screw-up I can find, and HE will be your leader and role model. Now you have no more excuses.
