N THE NAME OF THE FATHER, and of the Son . . . .” Wait! Hold
it right there. What do you mean, the “Son”? Who is the Son?
Who is this Jesus, whose name we use so freely, whose image
shows up on bumper stickers, hangs on our walls, and even dangles
from our ears? What do Catholics believe about this Jesus?
Truly God, truly human
He’s the Son of God of course. And in that designation “Son” is
wrapped up a world of meaning.
Son of God, a human being, a healer, one who gave
his life for the world and is present with us today—all
these and more answer the question: Who is Jesus?
