Heard someone else make a true comment connecting Adam & Eve's disobedience with the suffering messiahship of Christ. God could've come to earth as King, but that was precisely what Adam & Eve suspected God of. God came into the world weak and suffering in response to our response (via Adam). Adam and Eve said, in effect, "you are not like us, you know more" so God came among us knowing less, as an infant. And then He left us something less than us to worship, a piece of bread. We have the same opportunity that Lucifer did in electing not to serve something less than us.
She also mentioned the value of "baptism in the Holy Spirit" from a local charismatic Catholic parish (something Mother Angelica had done). She said the gifts at Confirmation (piety, fear of the Lord, fortitude...) are different from the ones given in the Baptism in the Spirit, the latter towards the building of the Church. I did a search of Catholic blogs and found at least one mention of it.
The goosebump moment was when she offered me a small prayer pamphlet with a novena to the Infant of Prague. The statue on the front was instantly familiar - it was the crowned infant in the nave of a local downtown church. About two weeks ago, I began bowing to this unknown infant I'd so long ignored because it was a child and I bowed in recognition of my "ageism" bias and the fact that Jesus said, "unless ye become as little children...".
UPDATE: Turns out the Infant of Prague is Jesus Himself. Appropriate, huh? In bowing in humility I was actually bowing to Christ.
