Rolle: the Infinite

Friday, January 20, 2023
    Commemoration of Richard Rolle of Hampole, Writer, Hermit, Mystic, 1349
No one is like you, O LORD;
    you are great,
    and your name is mighty in power.
    —Jeremiah 10:6 (NIV)
    God truly is of infinite greatness, better than we can think; of unreckoned sweetness; inconceivable of all natures wrought; and can never be comprehended by us as He is in Himself in eternity.
    ... Richard Rolle (1290?-1349), from The Mending of Life, in Fire of Love [1343], tr. Richard Misyn, VI. (see the book)
    See also Jer. 10:6; Deut. 32:3; Job 37:5; Ps. 145:3; 150:2; Eccl. 3:11; Isa. 40:28; Rom. 11:33; Eph. 1:18-19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my spirit is in awe of You.
