... "There is also the danger of attempting so to redraw and humanize the face of Christ that it may fit into the features of that "home." Many such humanizations and sentimental falsifications are to be found in so-called popular piety, and are expressed even in certain hymns. We must have the readiness to relinquish such all-too-human substitutes, however comfortable we may feel them. We must be filled with the desire to look into the unfalsified countenance of Christ as show[n] by the Church in her liturgy." [Transformation in Christ, New York, Image Books, 1963, p. 28]
