Take a moment to reflect on the photo.

The universe unfolds in God, who fills it completely. Hence there is a mystical meaning to be found in a leaf, in a mountain trail, in a dewdrop, in a poor person's face. The ideal is not only to pass from exterior to the interior to discover the action of God in the soul, but also to discover God in all things.

— Laudato Si'

Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.

— Psalm 46:10


All-powerful God,

you are present in the whole universe

and in the smallest of your creatures.

You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.

Pour out upon us the power of your love,

that we may protect life and beauty.

Fill us with peace,

that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one. 

Laudato Si'
