The Wisdom of the Biblical Accounts of Creation (Part One) – Exploring Pope Francis’ Spiritual Vision of Creation in Laudato Si’ — 1 Comment

  1. Further contemplating Genesis, I am particularly struck by Pope Francis’ Encyclical LAUDATO SI’, On Care Of Our Common Home, Paragraph 239: “For Christians, believing in one God who is trinitarian communion suggests that the Trinity has left its mark on all creation.” ‘All creation’ in this technological age means quarks to galaxies and us within it. But then Romans 18: “creation itself also will be delivered from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the sons of God. For we know that all creation groans and travails in pain until now” I don’t think St Paul had a limited sense of creation but understood its magnitude even further than as we currently understand. Somehow, all of creation and us within and including COVID will be delivered into glory. I think we see glimpses of that happening.
