"Developing the whole person - spirit, body, and mind."

Kristos Pantokrator (Christ Almighty), one of the Church's first images of Jesus Christ. His two different facial expressions could indicate his two natures (divine & human). 
"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things [food, drink, clothing] will be yours as well." 
--Matthew 6:33

"Why don’t you have confidence in me, your Creator? Why do you rely on yourself? Am I not faithful and loyal to you?

Redeemed and restored to grace by virtue of the blood of my only Son, man can then say that he has experienced my fidelity.

And, nevertheless, he still doubts, it would appear, that I am sufficiently powerful to help him, sufficiently strong to help and defend him against his enemies, sufficiently wise to illuminate the eyes of his intelligence or that I have sufficient clemency to want to give him whatever is necessary for his salvation.

It would appear that I am not sufficiently rich to make his fortune, not beautiful enough to make him beautiful; one might say that he is afraid not to find enough bread in my home to nourish himself, nor clothing with which to cover himself." 

--Jesus to St. Catherine of Siena (in The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Siena)
