God is good

Bloom remembers the midwife, Mrs. Thornton, recognizing that Rudy would not live and commenting, "Well, God is good, sir." Gifford identifies this remark as a "staple cliché of Irish fatalism. It masks the inscrutability of God's omniscience and omnipotence: even what seems disastrous to human beings can be 'good' in the divine order of things." (The Arabic expression insha'Allah, "God willing," expresses a similar fatalist spirit.)
