We build our lives on Truth; Christ, on Peter. The weather-vain in the Catholic Church points toward Truth.
The New Adam emerges from the waters that the sons’ of men may become the sons of God.
You have the false point of view which looks at Christ with fear of the loss of what they posses (authority/goods) and you have the point of view from the Magi; honoring God and bring to Him what he has given to them.
The world before Christ has been violently shaken and new life in the New Adam is offered to us. In Christ we can accomplish what naturally is beyond our strength.
