ONE HELLUVA HAIRCUT....JUST SAYIN'
This is the lectern cover, designed, of course, by Kiko, and the first step, (the camel's nose in the tent) of the conversion of the Agat church to Kiko's Way.
Aside from the terribly strange haircut for a first century Jewish boy, what's with the "deer caught in the headlights" expression on his face? Certainly not very becoming for the Word Made Flesh. Perhaps Kiko is one of those who subscribes to the belief that the young Jesus didn't know he was God. How interesting that this is how Jesus is presented on Neocatechumenal lecterns everywhere.
But beyond that, what's with the just as terribly strange Marian title: "Mary Little One - Earthly Dwelling of the Humble" HUH?
Mary may have been "little" when she said "May it be done unto me according to thy word." But from then on, in the eyes of the Church - the Catholic one - she became great, glorious, the first among the saints, Blessed, Heavenly Queen, Mother of God.
In fact, the idea that Mary is still a "little one" is how non-Catholic Christians see her. They acknowledge her only as an earthly conduit for the birth of Jesus, but that's it. For them, she remains just another human, a sinful creature like the rest of us, a simple woman, a "little one".
