What was one of the salient characteristics of Christ’s life? Bonaventure points to Christ’s humility as the guiding principle for all his actions. In his treatment of the second fruit, Bonaventure argues that humility is the root and the guardian of all the virtues. In his discussion of the Second Fruit, Bonaventure examines the early life of Christ from his birth to his discovery in the Temple by his parents Mary and Joseph (Lk 2). At every turn, Bonaventure finds the humility of Christ illustrated in his words and deeds. Join us, this week as we discuss the humility shown through Christ’s life.
