All Good Proclaims God

There is not a flower that opens, not a seed that falls into the ground, and not an ear of wheat that nods on the end of its stalk in the wind that does not preach and pro­claim the great­ness and the mer­cy of God to the whole world. There is not an act of kind­ness or gen­eros­i­ty, not an act of sac­ri­fice done, or a word of peace and gen­tle­ness spo­ken, not a child’s prayer uttered, that does not sing hymns to God before his throne, and in the eyes of men, and before their faces.” — Thomas Mer­ton (1915 — 1968), Sev­en Sto­ry Moun­tain (1948)
