Lorenzo Scupoli on praising God for His creation.
Lorenzo Scupoli says that when we see sunsets or mountains we can
reflect that all this visible beauty is the work of the invisible and most beautiful creative Spirit, in Whom lies the cause of all external beauty. Then, filled with joy, say: ‘O rich streams flowing from an uncreated source! O life-giving rain drawn from the boundless sea of all blessings! How I rejoice in my innermost heart, when I think of the ineffable beauty of my Creator—the origin and cause of all created beauty! What spiritual sweetness fills me, when I hold in my mind to the thought of the beauty of my God, which no word can describe nor thought comprehend, and which is the principle of all beauty!’
"As a teacher, I need calm amid the storm of the day. During my planning period, lunch, and after school, I listen to Ancient Faith Radio to relax and praise God. Primarily after school, I tune to interviews and various podcasts. I have been contemplating converting to Orthodoxy for quite some time. This station guides me as I journey. From the depths of my soul, I thank you."
