Omnipresent.

“Whither shalt go from Thy Spirit? In addition, from Thy presence whither shall I flee? If I

go up into heaven, Thou art there: if I go down into Hades, Thou are present there. I (I take up

my wings toward the dawn, make mane abode in the uttermost parts of the sea, even He shall

Thy hand guide me, and Thy right hand shall hold me” (Ps. 138:7-9).

God is not subject to any limitation in space, but he fills everything. Filling everything, God,

as a simple Being, is present in every place, not as it were in some part of Him, or by merely

sending down some power from Himself, but in all His Being; and He is not confused with that

in which He is present. “The Divinity penetrates everything without being mingled with anything,

but nothing can penetrate Him” (St. John Damascene). “That God is present everywhere

we know, but how, we do not understand, because we can understand only a sensuous presence,

and it is not given to us to understand fully the nature of God” (St. John Chrysostom).
