That you, rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
God’s love is so immense…it is boundless. Infinite. And St. Paul says that each of us is “grounded” in that Love. It is beyond anything we can grasp with our finite minds (“surpasses knowledge”). The question is: Are we aware of our rootedness in Love? This takes surrendering our ego’s insatiable desires…a ‘self-emptying’ if you will. We must follow Jesus’ example: “Who, though he was in the form of God, did no regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness, and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:6-7). When I empty myself of “my” desires (ego)…only then can I be “filled with all the fullness of God.” Paradoxically, it is then that I am born to new life and I discover my true self…love grounded in Love. This is truly Good News!
