Faith for the Journey of Life

My Thoughts on Faith, Life, and 2,000+ Years of Catholicism / Christianity

Who is God?

Since all life begins with God, we should start this Blogging journey with God.

Who is God? Certainly neither this Blog nor all the blogs in the world could not adequately answer this question.

But for discussion purposes, let me briefly answer who God is to me. As a Catholic Christian, I believe that God is all-powerful, eternal, without beginning and without end, all-knowing, and all-seeing. God exists everywhere. God created everything simply by willing it into being. God has incomprehensible power at His disposal but He also has incomprehensible mercy and love for us. Just as God's power has no bounds, neither does His love and mercy. As Saint John records in that famous passage (John 3:16), God so loved the world that He sent His only Son into the world to redeem it. God is actually Three in Being - the Trinity. He is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Three in one and one in three, a concept that is sooooo beyond human comprehension that it must be accepted on faith alone.

Who is God? Well this post was just to give you a basic frame of reference for who I believe God is. Essentially I shall continue answering this question with each subsequent posting.

Vivat Jesus!
