CQOD: 12/14/06 -- John of the Cross: the incomparability of God

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 14, 2006
Feast of John of the Cross, Mystic, Poet, Teacher, 1591
    As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.
    -- John 15:9 (ESV)

    No knowledge, therefore, and no conceptions in this mortal life, can serve as proximate means of this high union of the love of God. All that the understanding can comprehend; all that the will may be satisfied with; and all that the imagination may conceive; is most unlike unto God, and most disproportionate to Him.
    ... St. John of the Cross (1542-1591), The Ascent of Mount Carmel

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You loved me when I was Your enemy.
