"O Magnum Mysterium"

To me, "Magnum Mysterium" is the name of God that feels best suited.

As humankind outgrows its medieval understanding of divinity, 
we would benefit from more mystery-awe-reverence 
and less feigned knowledge.

Lutheran mystic Jacob Boehme's best known work is "Mysterium Magnum."
