Excerpts from Guardini, Romano THE LORD

“None of the great things in human life spring from the intellect; every one of them issue from the heart and its love.”  p. 19

“Jesus did not ‘experience’ God; he was God; He ver at any given moment ‘became’ God; He was God from the start.”  p. 20

“The whole problem is a mystery, the sacred mystery of the relationship of the triune God to his Incarnate Son.  We can never penetrate it, and knowledge of this incapacity must dominate our every though and statement concerning Jesus’ life.”  p. 31

“Everything He did was done from the eternal; everything He experienced was caught up into the eternal.”  p. 42

“Jesus looms like a rescuing cliff above the tides of human suffering.”  p. 49

“Jesus walks through the flood of pain, and the power of God flows form Him like  a wave of human healing.”  p. 53

“Eternal revolt of the human heart against the bearer of its own salvation. . . . The real reason is never given; invariably it is this mysterious, inexplicable impulse of the fallen human heart revolting against the holiness that is God.”  p. 53

“The Spirit within Him has the power to heal – to heal from the root of the evil.”  p. 55

“One after another they appear: the lame, the halt, the blind – living witnesses of the healing power that radiates from the Son of God.”  p. 57

“The Lord warns us also to guard against ourselves, against the deeply rooted human traits of vanity, complacency and egotism…Not even before oneself should and act of charity be paraded or reveled it.  Send that inner, applauding spectator away, and let the act, observed only by God, stand on its own.”  p. 99

“What the Sermon on the Mount demands of us is . . . a beginning and a continuing, a rising again and plodding on after every fall.”  p. 107

“It is Satan who leads people to be irritated by truth and to harden their hearts to its sacred tidings.”  p.  135

“Christ the Intermediary is a sacred living artery thorough which divine purity and forgiveness flow; through the establishment of the Eucharist he becomes a permanent artery; supplying all generations with the supernatural abundance of divine life.”  p. 143
