The prologue to St. John’s gospel introduces God’s Son as the Word. This life-giving Word—spoken down through the ages—became flesh and lived in our midst. For all of Christian history, the Word is intimately connected with all of human life. It is the purpose of TWIL (“The Word Is Life”) to bring the gospel to life and to bring life to the gospel. This blog will feature reflections on the Sunday Scriptures from contemporary Catholic writers, words of wisdom for our Spiritual journey from saints and blessed, and thoughtful reflections on masterpieces of sacred art. We at Living with Christ hope that they will help you grow in your spiritual life and deepen your relationship with the Word, our Lord Jesus Christ.

God’s Creation Continues

Categories: The Word Is Life

Below is a short reflection based on today’s reading from Genesis

God saw how good it was. Genesis 1:10
As I pray with the creation story, I am reminded that all of creation is an expression of God’s goodness and love. How differently would I go through my day if I remembered that every person and part of nature vibrate with the goodness of God? When I really tune into this truth, praise and positivity will pervade my attitudes and actions.
Today, the creation story continues—and we are part of it. In the beginning and now, God is intimately involved in the formation of creation. Theologi-ans describe God as the Great Artist who continues to form creation in order to share more goodness and love. God rejoices in the goodness revealed.

God, help me to rejoice with you in the goodness of creation.
