On Theodicy

(This article is now under review with a book publisher.) It speaks of the idea that Christ was Beauty incarnate, and asks, then, “what did Beauty look like?” Since he chose to be among those most marginalized by the culture of his day, such as the poor, lepers, widows, and orphans, so likewise might we find Christ among the most marginalized of our day—the poor, people testing HIV-positive, widows, and orphans. It encourages people to look at one another, face to face, to recognize the Beauty of Existence in one another, and to treat one another as Christ’s Beloved.
