Laudato Si’ Mysticism 3
DIVINE MEETING PLACES
The perspective of Laudato Si’ is that every molecule of creation is sacred, and that through each single one God’s love is revealed. Creation is God’s first self-revelation, and it reveals God’s limitless love and affection for us. It is as if God were saying, ’Let’s pull out the stops, so everyone on the face of the earth will be able to see our love. All they have to do is to look at what is surrounding them!’ God sees all creation as good. When our impaired vision is corrected we come to see the world as a loving gift, and so are drawn towards God, and then towards care of the gift of creation that has been entrusted to our care. This is the goal of Laudato Si’. From this 20/20 mystical vision of nature as divine gift, our care for the earth will flow.
