We do not live in isolation. We are part of something much bigger, and our quest for God must go hand in hand with our quest to live in a right relationship with creation; a relationship not of estrangement, but of union, communion and harmony. May St. Hildegard help open our eyes to see the beauty of the world around us, and inspire us to see in nature traces of the mind and love of God.
