Seeing God’s Greatness in His Creation
November 24, 2010 Length: 1:01
St. John of Kronstadt on praising God in His creation.
I love to hike through the woods and around water—the peacefulness and beauty drives home for me God’s greatness. While you may not enjoy hiking, St. John of Kronstadt says that nature should draw our minds to God:
Who is it that so wisely, delicately and beautifully arranges and transforms the ugly, the sightless, formless substance of the earth into flowers? Who gives them their wonderful forms? Creator, grant that we may salute in the flowers Thy wisdom, Thy goodness, Thine omnipotence.
"This past mother's day I officially progressed from catechumen to convert, and AFR played an integral role in my coming home. In fact, I do not know how my transition from burned-out bapticostal to Orthodox could have happened without both AFR and the welcoming arms of St. Peter's Western Rite here in Ft. Worth. Bless you!"
