Augustine Day by Day - September 2 - The Testimony of Creation

"When I asked the earth, it responded: 'I am not God.' When I asked the heavens, the sun, the moon, the stars, they said: 'Nor are we the God you seek.' I said: 'Speak to me of my God.'

"Loudly, they exclaimed: 'It is He Who made us.' The heavens, the earth, and everything that is in them, all these things tell me to love you."

-- Confessions 10, 6

Prayer. It was you, O Lord, who created the heavens and earth. They are beautiful because you are beautiful. They are good because you are good. They have come to be because you are.

-- Confessions 11, 4
