Infinite Beauty of God

When we see a beautiful object, a beautiful garden, or a beautiful flower, let us think that there we behold a ray of the infinite beauty of God, who has given existence to that object. – St. Alphonsus Mary Liguori

You don’t have to travel to another country to find beauty.  Beauty has a way of surviving the most formidable foes. Beauty is a sister to Hope in that way.  If your eyes and ears are acutely sharpened, you will find that Beauty and Hope constantly whisper your name to pay attention. You will be consistently distracted by these two. Before  you know it, your eyes will stray to a flash of colour over there or your ear will tune into a soft strumming here. You are caught time and time again by a ray of the infinite beauty of God and Hope suddenly arrives too.  What is out of focus suddenly becomes perfectly clear. The essential  is what remains of life once the Creator has your attention.

Peace,

Suzanne

About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
