Newman: the depth of the story

Friday, August 11, 2023
    Feast of Clare of Assisi, Founder of the Order of Minoresses (Poor Clares), 1253
    Commemoration of John Henry Newman, Priest, Teacher, Tractarian, 1890
    Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
    —Romans 11:33 (NIV)
    Every passage in the history of our Lord and Saviour is of unfathomable depth, and affords inexhaustible matter of contemplation. All that concerns Him is infinite, and what we first discern is but the surface of that which begins and ends in eternity.
    ... John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890), Discourses Addressed to Mixed Congregations, Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1849, p. 342 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 11:33; John 1:18; Eph. 2:6-7; 3:8-11,17-18; Col. 1:25-27; 2:2-3; 1 Tim. 3:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, though Your Son is beyond comprehension, You have declared that we may know Him.
