The beauty of God's creation

The Book of Sirach reading today ends by remaining us

The universe lives and abides forever; to meet each need, each creature is preserved.All of them differ, one from another, yet none of them has he made in vain, For each in turn, as it comes, is good; can one ever see enough of their splendor?

Today is a day to stop and reflect on the concept of the universe. The truly infinite beauty of what God has created, each individual creature with a purpose. In those moments when our vision narrows to our own challenges of the day, its time to return to the question. "Can one ever see enough of their splendor?" Pull back, take the wide angle lens, and drink in the glory of God.
