ON GOD’S BEAUTY
While giving a retreat at the FCJ Christian Life Centre in Calgary, I had the opportunity to escape to the Rockies for a weekend. This is one of those places on planet earth where it is impossible to yawn! Gasping with wonder, breathing deep, and resting in silence are the only things a sane person can do here.
As I looked at the photos I tried to look for a short reflection that could go with any of the photos. This is a short reflection that I think fits the image. Take some time to gaze at the photo and then read the quotation slowly and contemplatively.
“In God’s beauty, all the earth is sanctified. Tree and stone, wood and paint have glory In God’s beauty. Creation is transformed; The fallen is made holy. And humanity, beholding Beauty’s vision, Shares God’s life.”
“On the Beauty of God” by an anonymous Orthodox author
