God cannot be regarded with indifference



WilliamStThierrySo loving and generous a God cannot simply be regarded with indifference, or be a matter for dispassionate, rational speculation. The Cistercians, therefore, are far readier to speak to God than about God:

Now, therefore, Lord, in complete faith I worship you. You who are God, the one Cause of all that is, the Wisdom whence the wiseness of every wise person comes, the Gift whence every happy person derives his happiness.

William of Saint Thierry
'The Spirit and the Soul', in Three Treatises on Man, CF 24:267.
