Are We in Tune with the Eternal?

It is an ecological, theological, and biological reality: The more we are in tune with eternal nature, the more we will be able to hear the still small voice withing and have explosions of inspirational insight.

God’s Glory is above all the Earth

In today’s Responsorial Psalm (Ps. 57) we read,

I will give thanks to you among the peoples, O LORD,
I will chant your praise among the nations.
For your mercy towers to the heavens,
and your faithfulness to the skies.
Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
above all the earth be your glory!

“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens.”
