St. John Damascene, Doctor, on Knowledge


St. John Damascene.2

Prescription of the Day:

Concerning the Holy Trinity:  “For as much as you seek, so much more ignorant you will be; and as much as you pry into it, so much the more will it be hidden. Let God, therefore, be adored by the faithful without meddlesome calculation.”  From the Epilogue of The Source of Knowledge.

People are curious. We are constantly seeking more and more in the ways of knowledge. The late Rev. Dr. Harold Bumpus often said, “When trying to explain God, eventually language fails.”

  •  Care to share how you simply adore the Lord without “meddlesome calculation?
  •  Are you humbled when you gain knowledge?
