God is infinite transcendence and infinite immanence at the same time. God is both infinitely one and infinitely diverse at the same time. That is the revelation of the Most Holy Trinity which teaches that there are three infinitely, distinct relationships in one divine reality.

Description

God was present in the beginning of time in the Word and the Word was God. All things came into being through Him. In Him was life and the life was the light of humankind. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not overcome it. (John 1: 1-5) God has an eternal plan and we are invited to be actively part of that plan. We who are incomplete, confused and riddled with the consequences of original sin constitute the human family. God sent His Son Jesus to invite us to Divine Union which is the sole remedy for the human predicament and its misguided search for happiness.


 

 Reflection: Listening

“I am the Lord, your God.” (Isaiah 43:3). If you can describe God, then you can be sure you are describing something other than God.

Reflection: Reflecting

What is your idea of God? Is it limiting? How might you let go of your idea? The absence of God is also God.

Reflection: Responding

/”Form me God, according to your will./” Allow God to be God in you. Desire to know the One True God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent.
