(Our Lady of Fatima)
St. Paul, in preaching to the people of Athens about God, said, “it is he who gives to everyone life and breath and everything.  He made from one the whole human race to dwell on the entire surface of the earth, and he fixed the ordered seasons and the boundaries of their regions, so that people might seek God, even perhaps grope for him and find him, though indeed he is not far from any one of us.  For ‘In him we live and move and have our being,’” Acts_17:15, 22—18:1

A magnificent sunrise or sunset.  The glory of a full and bright double rainbow.  The shape of an angel in the clouds.  The thunder of a waterfall.  The power of a tornado, hurricane or earthquake.  The intricacy of nature.

Do these awesome sights, sounds and wonders spark our appreciation, our praise of God, beloved?  Might they cause us to grope for Him, and maybe even find Him?

Then, what about our very beings?  Can we not see God working in the very workings of humanity?  St. Paul tells us that, “In Him we live and move and have our being.”  Jesus, in speaking of the Holy Spirit said, “He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.”  And then he continued in the same breath about God His Father, saying, “Everything that the Father has is mine;”  Jn 16:12-15

A PERFECT unity!  God the Father, God the Holy Spirit, and God the Son.  Every word, every thing belongs to one and all.  And by our baptisms, we are included in that unity as well.  We are one with God and with one another.  And as we continue to grow in our faith, we come to realize that Truth more and more.  With every breath we take:  We ARE ONE!
