He, therefore, who is not illumined by such great splendor
of created things, is blind; he who is not awakened by
such great clamor is deaf; he who does not praise God
because of all these effects is dumb; he who does not
note the first principle from such great signs is foolish.
Open your eyes, therefore, prick up your spiritual ears, open
your lips and apply your heart, that you may see, hear, praise,
love and worship, glorify and honor your God.

Bonaventure (1221-1274)



This man He (God) set upon the earth as a kind of second world, a microcosm; another kind of angel…. He was king of all upon the earth, but a subject of heaven; earthly and heavenly, transient yet immortal; belonging both to the visible and to the intelligible order…; combining in the same being spirit and flesh…. Thus he is a living creature under God’s Providence here, while in transition to another state and … in process of deification by reason of his natural tendency toward God.

Gregory Nazianzus (329-389)
