Readings for today’s Mass
This back door of my house has become a regular place for me to witness God’s presence through nature. Facing east, it has offered an array of fall colors on the bluffs, a peaceful sunrise on a hectic morning, and a bright moon rising silently, just before I turn in for the evening.
If you have ever stood in awe and wonder at a beautiful sunrise, majestic mountain, or tranquil body of water, you are not alone. God reveals Himself through Earth’s natural wonders. How much more amazing is it that God created not just the beauty we find in nature but each and every single one of us! We can read in the creation stories of Genesis that God found all his creation good; but when he got to humans, he found us VERY GOOD!
The writer in our first reading is reminding his audience that, yes, God’s goodness can be found in the natural world but how much greater and more amazing is the Creator than anything we can behold with our own eyes.
As the days grow shorter and the cold of winter begins to settle in, it may be more difficult to enjoy the outdoors, but try and take a moment to absorb the care and thought our God has put into creating the World around us and how much more love and care He puts into us!
