Demnitatea vizibilului

Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961).

„The account of the creation of man in Genesis 1 affirms from the beginning and directly that man was created in the image of God inasmuch as he is male and female. The account of Genesis 2, by contrast, does not speak of the „image of God”, but reveals, in the manner proper to it, that the complete and definitive creation of „man” (subject first to the experience of original solitude) expresses itself in giving life to the communio personarum that man and woman form. In this way, the Yahwist account agrees with the content of the first account. If, vice versa, we want to retrieve also from the account of the Yawist text the concept of „image of God”, we can deduce that man became the image of God not only though his own humanity, but also through the communion of persons, which man and woman form from the very beginning. The function of the image is that of mirroring the one who is the model, of reproducing its own prototype. Man becomes the image of God not so much in the moment of solitude as in the moment of communion. He is, in fact, „from the beginning” not only an image in which the solitude of one Person, who rules the world, mirrors itself, but also and essentially the image of an inscrutable divine communion of Persons.”

John Paul II, Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body, 9:3
