In four moments, Fr. Emmanuel Hirschauer proposes a discovery of Fr. Marie-Eugene’s teaching about the human person in its corporeality by commenting on the joyful, luminous, sorrowful and glorious mysteries of Jesus’ life.
“We are always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our body ” (2 Co 4,10).
We are made for beauty and glory ! One day, our whole body will radiate God’s life ! « I believe in the resurrection of the flesh » : it might sound amazing, but this is what we believe in !
According to Fr. Marie-Eugene, here below already the Spirit of God transforms us through our faith in Him:
With other saints, Fr. Marie-Eugene liked to imagine an encounter which is not related in the Gospel, the encounter between the Risen Christ and His mother, the Virgin Mary :
This is Mary’s Son, her Jesus ! It is already a vision of eternal life ! What a joy for the Blessed Virgin ! What a triumph for her maternity ! There he is – the King ! Simeon was indeed right… Although she understood from the words of the angel that he was going to be triumphant, she probably never dreamed he would be so splendid, so great as he is at this hour ! Jesus probably falls in the arms of his Mother. The Son and the Mother affectionately embrace each other. (Fr. Marie-Eugene, More Mother than Queen, p. 139-140).
