O great God, Father of all things, Whose infinite light is
darkness to me, Whose immensity is to me as the void.
You have called me forth out of Yourself because You love
me in Yourself, and I am a transient expression of Your
inexhaustible and eternal reality.
If I could not know You, I would be lost in this darkness,
I would fall away from You into this void, if You
did not hold me to Yourself in the Heart of Your only
-Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude, p. 71
