Thought Of the Day


"Whoever sees me sees the one who sent me"

This too is the explanation of the answer he gave the young man who called him good master and asked his advice about achieving eternal life: Why ask me about the good? No one is good except the one God (Mt 19: 17; Mk 10: 17). (...) If you understand me in that form, then I am indeed good, but if only in this visible one, why ask me about the good? If you are going to be one of those who will see him whom they have pierced (Rv 1 :7), that sight will be evil for them, because it will mean punishment for them. " For that sight of God in which we shall behold his unchanging substance, invisible to human eyes and promised only to the saints and described by the apostle Paul as face to face (1 Cor 13: 12), of which the apostle John says, We shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is (1 Jn 3:2), and of which it is said, One thing have I begged of the Lord, to behold the delight of the Lord (Ps 27:4), and of which our Lord himself says, And I will love him and show myself to him (Jn 14:21), in order to be blessed the pure of heart, because they shall see God (Mt 5:8), and whatever else is said about this sight, which anyone who directs the eyes of love to seeking it may find scattered plentifully throughout the scriptures; this sight alone is our supreme good, and it is to gain this that we are bidden to do whatever we do rightly.
