                                                The God of Paradox

You are a God of infinite power and yet utterly merciful.                                     You can hide yourself from us and yet be with us all the time.                         You are the creator of both raw energy and gentle beauty.                                You never change, and yet you are the author of change everywhere.                   You are neither old nor young (being eternal), yet you make all things new.          You are endlessly active and yet the source of true rest.                                      You love totally, but without obsession, you possess us completely,                          but without anxiety or domination. You owe us nothing, but pay                            off all the debts of our sins.                                                St. Augustine
