knowing nothing but Jesus Christ and Him Crucified

I know your sole purpose . . . is to become more united to God and it seems to me impossible that He won't fulfill that desire.  But it means, you know: "knowing nothing but Jesus Christ, and Him crucified."  You remember the bitter realism of Isaiah: "Without beauty, without majesty: we saw Him, and we turned our eyes away."
