Irenaeus: beholding God

Wednesday, June 28, 2017
    Feast of Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, Teacher, Martyr, c.200
    No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known.
    —John 1:18 (RSV)
    The glory of God is a living man; and the life of man consists in beholding God.
    ... Irenaeus (c.130-c.200), from Adversus Haereses, The Writings of Irenaeus, v. I, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1868, IV.xx.7, p. 444 (see the book)
    See also John 1:18,14; 14:9-10; 2 Cor. 4:6; Heb. 1:1-4
Quiet time reflection:
    Father, in Jesus have I known You.
