Full of God’s glory

The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)

Deacon Robert Banet

I still can’t see it!

What can’t you see, Charlie?

We say in the Mass that heaven and earth are full of God’s glory. So where’s the glory?

It’s all around us, Charlie. See that maple tree over there? That is there by the power of God. It is a manifestation of God.

How do you figure that?

We say in the Creed that the Holy Spirit is the Lord and giver of life. So the life in that maple, the life that keeps it alive, is a manifestation, that is, the glory of God.

Well, I guess so, if you put it that way. But what about things that don’t have life? How do they manifest God’s glory?

Well, their chemical elements have been put together by God’s power. And even things like high and low pressure and gravity and eye sight and the sense of beauty and gifts like a singing voice or an ability to draw likenesses. I don’t know about heaven being full of God’s glory but I do know about earth’s being crammed with the glory of God.

Well, you’ve sure given me something to think about.

Charlie, you yourself are a manifestation of God! Glory to God!
