Today's Alleluia verse from Mass reads: "Receive the word of God, not as the word of men, but as it truly is, the word of God." The more you listen to the word of God, the more you come to know God. Of course, the direct way to know God is to go straight to Jesus. Read about him in the Gospels and pray to him unceasingly. Most and best of all, receive him reverently in the Holy Eucharist. Once you achieve deep union with him, you will know that you know him. You and God are now one.
