Written with a Strange Beauty

'The law that is perfect because it takes away all imperfections 
is charity, and you find it written with a strange beauty 
when you gaze at Jesus your Savior 
stretched out like a sheet of parchment on the Cross, 
inscribed with wounds, 
illustrated in His own loving blood.  
Where else is there a comparable book of love to read from?' 

Blessed Jordan of Saxony
