Jesus was intimately involved with the natural world. When he spoke of God and of God’s Kingdom, he almost always pointed to the natural world around him: to seeds, the harvest, the clouds, vines, weeds, sheep, fire, water, lilies, bread, wine. “Consider the lilies of the field.” Let the lilies speak to you of the One who created them. Walk out into God’s wonderful creation – and be touched by the very hand of God.
-Br. Geoffrey Tristram, SSJE
