How rich are the depths of God – how deep his wisdom and knowledge – and how impossible to penetrate his motives or understand his methods! Who could ever know the mind of the Lord? Who could ever be his counsellor? Who could ever give him anything or lend him anything? All that exists comes from him; all is by him and for him. To him be glory for ever! Amen.
Second reading for the 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
Often in our contemporary society there are debates, discussions about whether or not God exists. They have their importance.
But for the believer in God what is most central is not so much that God exists but who this God is and how he exists: the mystery of love, goodness and truth that flows from his Being. And how we respond to the invitation to respond to and participate in that Being of God, who gives us life, and reaches out to us and calls us to the fullness of life.
That God exists may be news to many. That God is love is good news for all.
