Advent Reflection

December 14th, 2007

“Isaiah’s discovery that God is beyond compare reveals what may seem a disturbing truth: God is, finally, unknowable. Still, while he is not to be absolutely known, he is apparently willing to reveal something of himself to us at nearly every turn. Think of it like this: he cannot be exhausted by our ideas about him, but he is everywhere suggested.

“He cannot be comprehended, but he can be touched.

“His coming in the flesh — this Mystery we prepare to glimpse again — confirms that he is to be touched.”

–Scott Cairns
