Hearts Moved to Praise

Hands open gesture of praise

When we can see God reflected in all that exists, our hearts are moved to praise the Lord for all his creatures and to worship him in union with them. This sentiment finds magnificent expression in the hymn of St. Francis of Assisi:

Praised be you, my Lord, through Brother Wind,
and through the air, cloudy and serene, and every kind of weather
through whom you give sustenance to your creatures.

—from St. Anthony Messenger‘s “Pope Francis On Our Common Home
by Pope Francis
