For the beauty of the earth

Archbishop José H. Gomez | New World of Faith

The summer months are a time of holiday for many families. Going to the beach, picnics in the park, camping. We find many ways to refresh ourselves and renew our relationships with family and friends through our contact with the beauty of the natural world.

This is the way it should be. Because this is the way we are made. In God’s loving design, there is meant to be an intimate bond of communion that unites us to the world of creation.

In Pope Benedict XVI’s words, there is a divine “covenant between human beings and the environment, which should mirror the creative love of God — from whom we come and toward whom we are journeying.”
