71. Work of the Fifth Day of Creation

1. The work of the fifth day was the production of fowls and fishes and things that creep in the waters. As the fourth day sees the firmament adorned with light-giving bodies, the fifth day sees the lower elements of air and water made fruitful with living things.

"If, devout soul, it is your will to please God and live a life of serenity in this world, unite yourself always and in all things to the divine will. Reflect that all the sins of your past wicked life happened because you wandered from the path of God's will. For the future, embrace God's good pleasure and say to him in every happening: "Yea, Father, for so it hath seemed good in thy sight." "
St Alphonsus de Liguori
