Autumn is my favorite season of the year. I love each season for its unique qualities, even the dead of The Way
Winter, but there is something about these weeks that brings me a of Faith
particular joy: the cooling temperatures (sweater weather!), the deep blue October sky, the changing colors of the leaves. The natural world enters into a period of dormancy, of rest, awaiting the new birth of the Easter season only a few months away—and even the passage into dor‐
mancy is beautiful, a gift from God who constantly reminds us of his own beauty through the created order, the natural world which he has given us to enjoy. Nature itself rejoices in its Creator. I am reminded of the last few lines of Psalm 65: “The hills are girded with joy, the meadows cov‐
ered with flocks, the valleys are decked with wheat. They shout for joy, yes, they sing.” Throughout the Psalms and the whole of Scripture we find these wonderful passages in which nature gives praise to God by simply being what God created it to be: “Mountains and hills shall break out in song before you, and all the trees of the countryside shall clap their hands” (Isaiah 55:12). In all of this we experience a great truth of our Christian faith: God pours his active love, which we call grace, into all of his creatures, and all of his creatures respond with joy in thanksgiving for that love. Human beings are given the uniquely privileged place of being made in the im‐
age of God, by which we are granted the capacity to know and love God with a unique freedom. As Thomas Merton observed, trees and squirrels praise God by simply being what they are, but we are made for a more complete, loving and free relationship with the one who made us, who redeems us, who sustains us. We are a part of the natural order, but given a unique identity and a unique role within that order, to treat it as our own home, guard, and nurture it. And to enjoy its beauty. For the next few weeks, I want to explore some of elements of na‐
ture that by grace lead us to a deeper knowledge of Jesus Christ, God his Father, and the Holy Spirit. We are a sacramental people, which means that we experience God’s grace through material things. This is sub‐
limely true of the seven Sacraments, which also then open our eyes to see the grace of God all around us, including in the natural world. As we will see, trees, water, the sun, the land, the wind, the mountains have more to tell us about the God who loves us, and about ourselves, than we might imagine. ~ Fr John David Bulletin notices and advertising: All information must be sent to the parish office no later than 8AM on Mondays.
