If, as Catholicism teaches, God is timeless and unchanging, then how can we have a relationship with Him (e.g., through prayer)? It is as though He is detached from us and is never actually “there” in our present. Can He even respond to us since He is immutable? Or is that a misunderstanding of immutability?
It just seems like a God who “desires us” and is always “seeking after us” and “speaking to us” in a still, small voice and listening to our prayers and guiding us through life is a God who is IN TIME, in OUR MOMENT. It doesn’t seem to square with the Catholic definition of God.
