“To gaze upon the face of God is to look beauty full in the face. God is looking intently at you. Are you returning His gaze? God’s eyes behold all things at all times. He is omnipotent. To look into God’s eyes is to stare into infinity.
How can man, made of dust, probe the mind of God? Love is the drawstring that allows God to be known. God is love and those that love Him are pulled into His embrace.
God created man to love Him. God created a beautiful garden of love to provide a mutual sharing of intimate encounters. It is God’s delight to speak to men. Yet today, as in the delightful Garden of Eden, man has rebuffed God’s tender love. Man chose instead the fruit of the forbidden tree, a rejection of God’s friendship. So today, man picks fruits from the trees of earthly existence, denying and rejecting God’s constant overtures.
What a sad state of affairs. Man rejects his highest good. This saddens the sweet and tender heart of God, the most loving of all fathers. Who can understand the mind of God? It is I, the Spirit of holy truth.”
