Lets take take some time to ponder a little about what God has revealed to us about Himself and why would we want union with God.
#1. Look up some attributes of God in the Bible (some online Catholic versions with search functions are: New American Bible, New Jerusalem Bible and the Douay-Rheims) and the Catechism of the Catholic Church (see bottom of page search function) using the search functions at these links.
I'd suggest looking up the words like "Yahweh", "God", "Jesus", "Lord", "mercy", "truth" and "love". Here are some examples:
God is Love. (I John 4:8)
God is Truth. (2 Samuel 7:28)
God is Merciful and Gracious and Forgiving. (Ex 33:18-19, Ex 34:5-6; cf. 34:9.)
Take about 15 minutes to think and pray about it. Write down some of the characteristics or attributes of God that are most attractive to you in the box below that you'd like to share with others in the class.
