He made the mute speak, the lame walk, the blind see and the deformed whole. Earlier, like a few eons before, He made everything out of nothing. And when there was already something, He took stardust and fashioned man to proclaim the glories of His creation.
This creative force is so strong, we feel it moving and alive with in us. There is in men an insatiable longing for completeness and fulness. We are thrilled by life and we know deep inside there is more to life than what we are experiencing now. The first spark of creation, when light broke out of the darkness, must have had an inkling there was more to come. The first stars must have felt they were just the first of many more. The first rocks, as the stars cooled down, must have known they will not be rocks forever. And the early moving and living organisms must have sensed they will become more complex over time. They knew but they could not speak it out. Man, with his consciousness and ability to speak, finally proclaimed the God of Creation.
I feel this cosmic unfolding, the Christogenesis that Teilhard de Chardin told us about, happening in me and in my life. I was born for greater things and I will live forever. The first light, the first stars, the first rocks and the first living organisms had no inkling what they will be eventually. I know what has gone on before and it is plain to me that I, and we, will live eternally.
I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.
~ Psalm 23
At that time:
Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee,
went up on the mountain, and sat down there.
Great crowds came to him,
having with them the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute,
and many others.
They placed them at his feet, and he cured them.
The crowds were amazed when they saw the mute speaking,
the deformed made whole,
the lame walking,
and the blind able to see,
and they glorified the God of Israel.
