Can it indeed be that God dwells on earth?

“Can it indeed be that God dwells on earth? If the heavens and the highest heavens cannot contain you, how much less this temple which I have built! Look kindly on the prayer and petition of your servant, O LORD, my God, and listen to the cry of supplication which I, your servant, utter before you this day. May your eyes watch night and day over this temple, the place where you have decreed you shall be honored; may you heed the prayer which I, your servant, offer in this place.” (1 KGS 8: 27-29) 

“God dwells on earth”; He dwells not only in one place, a very special temple, but also in every church and every chapel all over the world. Our Lord really wanted to be with us and listen to us. His “eyes watch night and day over” every place where we come with our prayers to meet Him. God really “dwells on earth.”  

“Incline my heart, O God, to your decrees; and favor me with your law.” (Gospel Acclamation)
