The Beginning of Wisdom by Fr. Smith
The Beginning of Wisdom
Deo Gratias! Deo Gratias! Deo Gratias!
Thanks be to God! The True God is not under my control:
Bitter experience has taught me the misery of getting what I asked for.
Thanks be to God! The True God is not predictable:
Not I, not any man, not any Angel, not any creature could predict the Incarnation, the
Crucifixion, or the Resurrection – where would I be without Jesus born of Mary? (In hell)
Thanks be to God! The True God is beyond my understanding:
How laughable, how pathetic, how impotent would be a divinity that I could comprehend.
THANKS BE TO GOD! GOD IS GOD AND I AM NOT! GOD IS AND I AM NOT! GOD IS!
