We pray today in thanksgiving to God for the beauty of His works and for raising man to share in the glorious work of saving souls and giving glory to God.
St. Augustine says:
“Approach the mountain, climb up the mountain, and you that climb it, don’t go down it. There you will be safe, there you will be protected. Christ is your mountain of refuge. And where is Christ? At the right hand of the Father, since He has ascended into heaven.”
