All of Creation Is A Ladder To His Throne
St. Francis praised the Artist in every one of his works; whatever he found in things made, he referred to their Maker. He rejoiced in all the works of the Lord's hands, and with joyful vision saw into the reason and cause that gave them life. To him all things were good. They cried out to him, "He who made us is infinitely good." By tracing His footprints in things Francis followed the Beloved wherever He led. He made, from created things, a ladder to His throne.
