NATURE AS MIRROR

by Fr. Richard Rohr

Nature was a mirror of the soul for St. Francis of Assisi — a mirror for himself and a mirror for God.  All this mirroring affected a complete change of consciousness in how he saw reality.

When Francis was a young man, he just loved to party.  One night he left the party and looked up at the stars above Assisi.  He stood there for a long time, and he was in awe of what he saw.  He said, “If these are the creatures, what must the Creator be like?”

The outer world began to name the inner experience and the nature of God for Francis.  It all became a two way mirror through which he could see God and also see his deepest soul.
