They will be like us and resemble us

« Now we will make human beings, they will be like us and resemble us »… God created human beings, making them to be like Himself. He created them male and female. He blessed them and said « Have many children so that your descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control »… God looked at everything He had made and He was very pleased. » (Genesis 1)

 When God creates mankind (man and woman), His preferred being, at the hight of the whole of Creation, it is as if He was returning to Himself in the intimacy of Trinity Love (« Now we will make human beings, and they will be like us »). God commits totally in this creation of man which resembles more a childbirth than a creation. The « Heart » of God three times holy opens itself in some way to receive this new being endowed in part with the attributes which are those of God (intelligence, freedom, etc.). And by opening itself up, It thus makes Itself vulnerable, It takes on the risk of man’s freedom which is capable of welcoming this favoured love or refusing It. The pierced Heart of Jesus is the ultimate expression of this agreed vulnerability.
