Psalm 83 from today’s Mass says that God is the “living
God.” What would a non living God be?
Well first of all it could be describing a no god. A god who didn’t
exist, a god who was made up, an idol made into an image of an
animal or a human or a mixture of the two.
It is a central experience of our religion that
God is the living God. He is a God who is real because He exists
and because He has a plan for the Cosmos and for the planet Earth
and all its inhabitants.
A living God is not a far off, distant God. A
living God is a close God, a God who is close to us and who is
near us. A living God is a God who lives within us.
A living God is a knowable God, a God of personal
experience, a God who wishes a personal relationship with each
one of us. As we draw to the end of this last week of the Catholic
year let us put ourselves into the hands of the Living God.
Living God, let your relationship to me be loving
and personal, not cold and distant. Come to my heart
and make me aware of your ongoing presence each
day of my life. Amen.
