It was Julian of Norwich who said: “Everything has being through the love of God…God is the creator and the protector and the lover.”  If this statement is true, then it follows that nothing of the created order is merely circumstantial or, for that matter, haphazard.  All of humanity—every human person—as well as all of creation—the earth and all it contains—is part and parcel of God’s design; and the subject and object of His mandate from the very beginning to truly care for what God Himself declared to be good indeed!  – Monsignor Frontiero
