Today’s Thoughts: I think the quote from Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J. that I will end this reflection with touches on the message from the Book of Wisdom today (Wisdom 13:1-9).
We certainly can learn a lot from nature, God’s creation however we must be observant. We need to look around us and see the blue skies, the many-colored leaves, the red, yellow and pink roses, the majestic trees, the soaring birds, the never-ending oceans and wonderful night sky. St. Paul of the Cross once talked about stopping to hush the flowers because they were speaking to him of God too loudly. God is all around us, God is within us, but we need to take the time to see and hear what nature, what God’s creation has to say to us!
“By means of all created things, without exception, the divine assails us, penetrates us, and molds us. We imagined it as distant and inaccessible, when in fact we live steeped in its burning layers”
Stop and take it in today! Have a great Friday everyone!
