Pope Benedict Speaks of the Face of Jesus

"We can certainly say that God gave himself a human face, the Face of Jesus, and certainly, from now on, if we truly want to know the Face of God, all we have to do is to contemplate the Face of Jesus! In his Face we truly see who God is and what he looks like!"

Referring to Pope John Paul II
"The meaning of his life...brings us always to the Face of Christ, supreme revelation of the mercy of God. To contiually contemplate that Face: this is the heredity which he has left us, and that we take to ourselves and make our own."
