Tuesday in the Twenty Second Week of Ordinary Time
The Spirit scrutinizes everything, even the depths of God. (1 Corinthians 2:10b)
Holy Spirit of God, Saint Paul's statement about You scrutinizing even the depths of God expresses our limits, not Yours. Our admission of shallowness and the "skin-deep" scrutiny that results can present to us how much more we are in need of You to understand ourselves, then be able to better understand You, as limited as this understanding will be.
The plan for our salvation is revealed to us in Christ, and through His cross we are embraced in God's full knowledge of our human limits. May I bring these limits to You to be taught by words by You the mind of Christ, to describe the depths of these spiritual realities with humility before the depths of Your spiritual terms.
