Jesus is “the action of God coming towards man to save him and lead him to the Father.  In Him, therefore, is revealed the fullness of the mystery of God’s love. But He is also the Man who, raised up by God, mounts towards the Father and thus fulfills the vocation of man. He is at once – let us repeat – the movement of God towards man and the movement of man towards God.”

~ Jean Daniélou
