He Looks Like His Parents

Tomorrow is the Feast of St Anthony of Padua. Here is a snippet from him about Christ's heritage, and ours:

"Christ had two quite different inheritances: one was from his Mother, and this was struggle and sorrow; the other was from his Father, and this was joy and peace. From the fact that we are co-heirs with him we must accept the same double inheritance... in the earth of humanity, founded on the seven pillars of a sevenfold grace, he planted the heavens of the divinity. Let us, then, take possession of the first inheritance which Christ left us, so that we may deserve to come to the second."
