On reasons of the world’s existence

As everyone knows, my father created the world and humans. But why did he do it? What had the entity – perfect and flawless, possessing all the most glorious attributes to the infinite degree – missed before? The Bible provides my father’s broad answer: “I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him” (Is 43:7).

A respected philosopher makes it clearer: “A magnificence, admired by nobody, feels uncomfortable. In these circumstances there is no inclination to be great. And so then, greatness gets wasted and serves for nothing; it is no use being great in eternal solitude”. One could not say it better. It does not make sense to be a God if there is no one by whom his divinity can be acknowledged, appreciated and praised.

So, as a matter of fact, there are you who make my existence significant. A perspicacious poet clearly grasps this truth, asking:

What will you do, God, when I die?
When I your pitcher, broken, lie?
When I your drink, go stale or dry?
I am your garb, the trade you ply,
You lose your meaning, losing me.

Of course, I could live without you – but for what purpose? I do definitely not want to lose my meaning. Therefore, to connect you more firmly with me, I decided to miraculously create a new place, where every one of you can be close to me, building my community and deriving some benefits from it. As I promised before: “he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (Jn 8:12). Today I want to add an even brighter tint to my original teachings, so come in and follow me.
