The Humility of God

(56 minutes)

Ilia Delio OSF

 

Ilia Delio presents Bonaventure’s view of a humble, hidden God who is intimately involved in our lives and in all of creation.  The cross is the most intense revelation of divine humility.  God is hidden in a unique way in each and every creature as humble love.  We are called to become like God by entering into the concrete reality of our world and opening spaces in our own hearts to embrace the lives and sufferings of others.
