The Sign of the Cross
The Crucifixion — Simon Vouet, 1622, Genoa.
Why did He come? And why did the world come into being? One must believe that I have a certain importance, I who am nothing… How is it possible that I am not great if I’ve messed up so many things in the world, disordered so many things in the world, and such a great world, at that? If I’ve started such a tragic history? A God, God went out of His way, God sacrificed Himself for me. This is Christianity.
