In the third fruit, Bonaventure focuses our attention on the Loftiness of Jesus Christ’s Power. From Christ’s baptism to his transfiguration, Bonaventure takes the reader across the life of Christ to help focus the reader’s attention on Christ’s power. The purpose of narrating each of these events which come primarily from the ministry of Jesus, is to demonstrate to the readers the salvific power to be found in the sacraments of the Catholic Church, the door to which, as Bonaventure claims, is the sacrament of baptism. Bonaventure tries to help Christians realize that Christ’s power is mediated to Christians via sacramental signs, known as the Seven Sacraments and through earnest prayer. Join us this week as we discuss Bonaventure’s perception of Christ’s power and how that power benefits Christians in their spiritual life.
