Notes on The Second Epistle of St. Paul to the Corinthians (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

5:16 We know no man according to the flesh: That is, we consider not any man with regard to his nation, family, kindred, or other natural qualities or advantages; but only with relation to Christ, and according to the order of divine charity, in God, and for God. The apostle adds, that even with respect to Christ himself, he now no longer considers him according to the flesh, by taking a satisfaction in his being his countryman; his affection being now purified from all such earthly considerations.
