For Hildegard all life was sacred: human, animal, plant…all of creation speaks of the wonder that is God. All life from insect to person deserved to be respected and celebrated. These sentiments can be sources of inspiration today. —for all those efforts that seek justice and harmony with the earth and all that is in it. Hildegard believed that all creation sings, shouts, and speaks of divine revelation, inspiration, and consolation. Through creation—be it a sunrise, a butterfly, a child’s laughter, a lover’s serenade—God reminds us of God’s presence to comfort us, hold us, and help us get up again when life knocks us down. Creation in its vastness and diversity reminds us that we are never alone. –
