To know God, the writer of today’s first reading says, not just to know about God, but to know God. We know about God as the Creator of every cell and molecule that gives form to all creation. We know about God as the final arbiter of all judgments and blessings. We know about God through all the stories and wonders recounted in the Bible.
“But the writer of John’s letter calls us to a deeper understanding of God,” says Father Jerry in today’s homily, “And the only way to really know God is through love. In love, we come to understand why God put all of creation into motion. In love, we begin to realize that we, and every soul, are held in the hand and heart of God. In love, we see the world as God sees it, and begin to realize God’s vision of humankind.”
