"Good theology always protects God's total freedom, and does not demand that God follow our rules. ... God is everywhere and always and scandalously found even in the failure of sin. If God is truly victorious, how could it be otherwise? In fact, there is no place left where God cannot be found. The Gospels never record Jesus having a single prerequisite for any of his healings: no affiliation with the right group, no moral worthiness, no attendance at the right temple, no purity codes, nothing except desire itself. ... Jesus is in effect saying that if God is everywhere, then God is not anywhere exclusively." - Fr. Richard Rohr (The Naked Now)
