afflāta du jour



A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.

~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

May you be praised, O Lord, in all your creatures, especially brother sun, by whom you give us light for the day; he is beautiful, radiating great splendour, and offering us a symbol of you, the Most High… May you be praised, my Lord, for sister water, who is very useful and humble, precious and chaste… May you be praised, my Lord, for sister earth, our mother, who bears and feeds us, and produces the variety of fruits and dappled flowers and grasses… Praise and bless my Lord, give thanks and serve him in all humility.
— St. Francis of Assisi, Canticle of the Creatures
