God Is There All the Time

light in skyBecoming aware that we have been divinized by Jesus Christ, invited into the Trinity family, is a felt realization of the numinous presence of God not only all around us but also within us. God is there all the time, waiting. But, like God’s forgiveness, God’s will to share the divine aliveness with us can’t activate until we invite it. It is the heart-stopping understanding that despite our shortcomings, despite our seeming insignificance to most of those around us, the God who dwells in unapproachable light dwells within us. As he did in a Bethlehem stable.

—Excerpted from God: The Oldest Question by William J. O’Malley, SJ


  1. Maravilhoso.
    Adoro ler estas reflexões inacianas. Me faz um bem enorme.
    Sou outra pessoa e penso totalmente diferente depois q comecei a ler e me envolver diariamente com o pensamento de Sato Inacio de Loyola.
    Agradeço bastante.
    Amo receber diariamente esta evangelização aqui no Brasil .manaus.amazonas.Preciso disso todos os dias.

  2. Thus wrote Mahatma Gandhi: “We may not be God, but we are of God, even as a little drop of water is of the ocean.”

  3. It certainly is “heart-stopping” when I think that the Creator of the universe loves me and dwells within me. I find this love so overwhelming and extremely challenging.
