O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How incomprehensible are His judgments and how unsearchable His ways! For “Who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor? Or who has first given to Him, that recompense should be made Him?” For from Him, and through Him, and unto Him, are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.
First Reading of Trinity Sunday (Rom. 11:33-36), New Roman Missal (Fr. Lasance), 1956.
I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows—was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell.
2 Corinthians 12:2-4.
