Two negatives just might reveal a positive

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

If the evil one is the Father of Lies, and if he works to obfuscate the truth by mixing in one lie with much truth, it is possible that he can reveal something about God through his actions against God?

Is it not true that in Judas' satan inspired betrayal of Jesus we see the Love of God, His mercy and  forgiveness?

Is it not true that as a result of Longinus' thrust of a spear into the heart of Christ the blood and water of Divine Mercy flowed over mankind?

God's mysterious purpose is revealed in many ways, sometimes as good coming from evil.

Now what if an artist goes out of her way to blaspheme the real presence of Christ. If this artist is inspired by the evil one might there still be some truth exposed in the "creative effort?"

The crucifix below is part of a collection of "pop art" that attack the truth of sacred objects in the Catholic Church.  And yet, might there be an unintended message sent in the substitution of E=mc2 for INRI (Jesus Christ King of the Jews).

I will leave it up to the reader to ponder this further.

Two negatives just might reveal a positive

See you on the High Ground!
