  • St. Basil the Great claimed that Jesus never laughed, and, I cannot remember which saint said it but there was one that even claimed He never smiled. Which makes sense given that His entire life was meant to be of the most intense suffering. This is not to detract from His interior joy through His union with the Father, but, the solemn Jesus matches His solemn character that comes through in the Gospels.

    I have to believe that He may have smiled from time to time.  In terms of emotion, we know that He wept over Lazarus.

    Of course, if you read Valtorta, He was yucking it up all the time, including when making impure jokes about His Mother.

    Incarnational means He took on all of our form.  That which was not assumed cannot be saved.  Christ the Divine Physician...how many wounds, misunderstandings, gentle rebukes, invitations, consolations are all communicated with just a smile?
    Impossible for me to believe that the Incarnate Word did not smile upon His creation
    The only way around it is through it.  Press on!

  • I have always found this image to be just a little disturbing, but if in fact Our Lord did look like this, I would prostrate myself before Him joyfully.

    I don't think we can go wrong with an approximation of the Shroud of Turin image.

  • Yes, a very moving video Ladislaus.

    Here is an in depth video that shows how the shroud is a moving image of Our Lord captured in the first seconds of the Resurrection showing how modern technology was able to uncover a veritable movie of the momentous event.

    Yeah, hearing the one about Him accusing an Apostle of having an impure thought about Our Lady was enough to keep me away from Valtorta.

    Just in case it is ever removed from YouTube
