Thank you, JennD., for nominating me for the bookworm award, which is also a meme.
Pass this on to 5 blogging friends. Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write the 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that.
"If a brush dipped in black becomes black, and if cloth takes on the color of the dye, would not He, in the eyes of the world, have also partaken of the guilt in which all humanity shared? If He came to this earth through the wheatfield of moral weakness, he certainly would have some chaff hanging on the garment of His human nature. Putting the problem in another way: How could God become man and yet be a sinless man and Head of the new Humanity?"
This passage was excerpted from Fulton J. Sheen's The World's First Love, Doubleday Image Book, 1952.
I am passing this award/meme on to:

I would love to select more, but am limited to 5.
