This month marks the 8th anniversary of the publication of Pope Francis’ letter to all of us on Caring for Our Common Home: Laudato Si.  To mark this anniversary, we have taken an excerpt to remind us of God’s presence in nature and the world around us.

The universe unfolds in God, who fills it completely. Hence, there is a mystical meaning to be found in a leaf, in a mountain trail, in a dewdrop, in a poor person’s face.  Standing awestruck before a mountain, we cannot separate this experience from God.” (LS, 233-4)
