The human face of God

“The angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’” (Luke 2:10-12)

El rostro humano de Dios

"El ángel les dijo: No teman. Miren que vengo a anunciarles una gran alegría, que lo será para todo el pueblo: hoy les ha nacido, en la ciudad de David, el Salvador, que es el Cristo, el Señor; y esto les servirá de señal: encontrarán a un niño envuelto en pañales y reclinado en un pesebre”. (Lucas 2,10-12)

Relativism and indifference

The astonishing advancement of science, technology and social changes has equipped us with an unprecedented individual and personal power to influence the history of humanity. This is a treasure of gigantic proportions that we are yet unable to grasp.

Finding God in all things

There is, to be sure, a stress within the biblical tradition that God is radically other: “Truly, you are a God who hides himself, O God of Israel, the Savior” (Isaiah 45:15) and “No one shall see [God] and live” (Exodus 33:20). This speaks to the fact that the one who creates the entire universe from nothing cannot be, himself, an item within the universe, one being alongside of others. But at the same time, the Scriptures also attest to God’s omnipresence: “Your Wisdom reaches mightily from one end of the earth to the other, and she orders all things well” (Wisdom 8:1) and “Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there. … If I take the wings of the morning and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me fast” (Psalm 139:7-12). This speaks to the fact that God sustains the universe in existence from moment to moment, the way a singer sustains a song.
