Christ as Head of the Cosmos

We're finishing up Pope Benedict's book on St. Paul for tonight's catechism discussion. This quote is amazing:

Therefore there is not, on the one hand, the great material world and, on the other, this small reality of the history of our earth, of the world of people: it is all one in Christ. He is the head of the cosmos; the cosmos too was created by him, it was created for us to the extent that we are united with him. It is a rational and personalistic vision of the universe. I would say that it would have been impossible to conceive of a vision more universalistic than this and that it befits the Risen Christ alone.
