The Wonders of God’s Creation

“Some people, in order to discover God, read books.

But there is a great book: the very nature of created things.  Look above you.  Look below you.  Note it.  Read it.  God sets before your eyes things he has made.

Can you ask for a louder voice than that?  Heaven and earth shout to you: God made us!”  (St. Augustine)


“God has written a precious book whose letters are the multitude of created things.  From panoramic views to the tiniest living form, nature is a constant source of wonder and awe.  It is a continuing revelation of the divine.  The entire material universe speaks of God’s love, God’s boundless affection for us.”      (Pope Francis, Laudato Si’)
