I would like to respond to a letter titled "Accuracy" by Fr John Crothers in the June edition of AD2000.
As we all know, God, as a pure Spirit, is neither male nor female. But I do not agree with the argument that God cannot be infinite unless he has a feminine aspect. As the letter states, "there would be something lacking, something that God is not, that is, the feminine aspect."
The reason I object is that if God were female He would need a companion to create life, hence such a statement tends to deny God's nature as the Creator of all being.
Christ Himself calls God - as a source of all life - "Father", which I believe we should all accept in faith. As the Breviary says, "Faith believes nor questions how."
It is not for us to question what God has revealed.
