Let everything that lives and breathes give praise to the Lord (Ps 150:6)
"This biblical litany of praise is echoed in Saint Francis' famous Canticle of the Sun. Saint Francis' love for creation was neither sentimental nor superficial. He understood in true humility what glory lies in being a creature of so great and loving God. From that perspective, there is no greater joy than to give praise and thanks." Magnifcat, 10/5/13.
