72. Work of the Sixth Day of Creation

1. The sixth day sees the land furnished with living bodies, and its chief living creatures placed in charge. Scripture (Gen.1:24,27) says, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature in its kind, cattle and creeping things, and beasts of the earth, according to their kinds. . . . And God created man to His own image."

"A man should keep himself down, and not busy himself in mirabilibus super se."

"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
