The Radiant Fire

Have you ever felt so full that you said: “I can’t eat another bite?” The great Christian thinker, Thomas Aquinas, believed that God was like that. God was a glass brimming over with love and radiance. Nothing else could be put into that glass. God needed to create us in order to have a place to put this overflowing love and radiance. Even the poet says that every bush of creation is on fire with God’s presence.

It is impossible to be empty of God! God, help me experience your divinity on fire within my humanity!
