Today is the Memorial of St. Bonaventure, Bishop and Doctor of the Church

“Scripture and Tradition never cease to teach and celebrate this fundamental truth: “The world was made for the glory of God.”  St. Bonaventure explains that God created all things “not to increase his glory, but to show it forth and to communicate it,” for God has no other reason for creating than his love and goodness: “Creatures came into existence when the key of love opened his hand.” – Catechism, Para. 293

“If there is anyone who is not enlightened by this sublime magnificence of created things, he is blind.  If there is anyone who, seeing all these works of God, does not praise Him, he is dumb; if there is anyone who, from so many signs, cannot perceive God, that man is foolish.”  – St. Bonaventure
