Stoning_St_Stephen_Saint-Etienne-du-Mont

 

 

 

 

The genius of the first commandment was that by putting “one God before you,” you were placed inside of one coherent world, with one center, one pattern, one realm of meaning…Having One who affirms us is a very good start for our ego structure and our growth as persons. God, for the believer, becomes the Ultimate Constituting Other.
~ Richard Rohr, Things Hidden: Scripture as Spirituality, p. 58.
