The Mysticism of Laudato Si’ 21
THE WORLD FROM WITHIN
Economics and politics make us look at the world as if we were superior to it. We can spend much time spectating things as if they meant little or nothing to us. But as minor mystics, we try to gaze in on created reality from the divine perspective The Pope asks us to become more conscious of our bondedness with all beings: we all started out together, and while we are indeed distinct we are tightly interwoven on Planet Earth. We are joined in a splendid universal communion, the dance of the species, and that dance will endure forever, for we have a common destiny, the transfigured glory of our common home, where all creation will rejoice together.
