"We shall awaken from our dullness and rise vigorously toward justice. If we fall in love with creation deeper and deeper, we will respond to its endangerment with passion." – Hildegard von Bingen
We protect what we love. Think of moments in your life when you've fallen in love with creation. Are there any physical places, types of weather, or times of the day when you are most likely to experience awe for the world?
Ask God for the grace to experience awe in response to creation today. Take some time to put yourself in the physical and mental space to fall more deeply in love with the people and world around you. In light of this love, how do you feel called to respond to care for the world?
Watch the sun rise or set
Go for a short walk and notice what you notice for 5 minutes
Delight in a beloved pet
Watch the afternoon light filter through the trees
Embrace the weather today, no matter the conditions
