They preach you a sermon ….

Enjoy recreation with ordinary pastimes and with the necessary relaxation; when you are walking alone .. lift up your spirit and listen to the sermon preached to you by the flowers, the trees, the shrubs, the sky and the whole world. Notice how they preach you a sermon full of love, of praise of God, and how they invite you to glorify the sublimity of that sovereign Artist who has given them being.

Walk in the good, believe in God, don’t try to acquire perfection by force but do everything quietly and then you will be truly humble. God will give you everything.

Letters of St. Paul of the Cross, L. I, 418
