Maximus the Confessor: “We do not know God from His essence.”

10 October 2015

Maximus the Confessor

“We do not know God from His essence. We know Him rather from the grandeur of His creation and from His providential care for all creatures. For through these, as though they were mirrors, we may attain insight into His infinite goodness, wisdom and power.”
– St Maximus the Confessor
