slide 6 of 16




And Nature, the old nurse, took
The child upon her knee,
Saying: “Here is a story-book
Thy Father has written for thee.”
“Come, wander with me,” she said,
“Into regions yet untrod;
And read what is still unread
In the manuscripts of God.”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)




We do not know God in His essence. We know Him rather from the grandeur of His creation and from His providential care for all creatures. By this means, as if using a mirror, we attain insight into His infinite goodness, wisdom and power.

Maximus the Confessor (580-662)


"We know Him rather from the grandeur of His creation and from His providential care for all creatures."
