With Mouth Closed

IMG_5616

Theology is a wonderful science so long as we don’t make a god of it. Because we do not know God through theology, even though the meeting of the word Theo-logy is the knowledge of God. No. The only way that we know God is on our knees, our mind completely empty and put into our hearts, our mouth closed. When we are like that, a mystery can slowly, slowly unfold. This requires silence, solitude and so many other things that Our Lady can teach us. ~Catherine Doherty, Bogoroditza: She who gave birth to God.
