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.
"If it weren't for AFR, I would be very, very lonely and sad this Lent. I come to work, put on the WMA stream, and get some peace. Being able to hear a Divine Liturgy means the world to me. I don't know if you and the AFR family realize how very important what you do is to some of us. It is a lifeline for me. Thank you all so very much for your ministry."
