Living God

The living mystery of absolute fulness 
Who is nameless 
and beyond imagination
Has drawn near to us 
Amid the tangle of our lives 
Through Jesus and the gift of grace 
Even when we do not realise it 
In order to be our salvation, splendor 
And support over the abyss. 

Karl Rahner, quoted by Elizabeth Johnson in ‘Quest for the Living God’
