A true scribe brings forth both the new and the old

Thursday, 8/3/17

Jesus said, “Every scribe who has been instructed in the Kingdom of heaven is like the head of a household who brings from his storeroom both the new and old.”

Aspiring to be such a scribe, I’d like you to consider our concept of Mother Nature. The Greeks in St. John’s time referred to Mother Nature as the Logos. St. John opened his Gospel by saying the Logos was here from before time.

In just the last two centuries Science has immensely broadened our knowledge of the composition of Mother Nature or the Logos. A true scribe can bring forth both the new and the old. 

Our bodies, that we had thought to be composed of maybe a hundred tiny organs, we now see to be animated by trillions of cells, with each cell functioning like a perfect pocket watch.

Take the Oxygen atoms we have by the billions. Each of them has a nucleus of eight protons with two electrons circling it in one orbit, and six electrons circling it in a broader orbit.   

You might appreciate what Dante said about the orderly functioning of our body parts. He wrote, “All things among themselves possess an order, and this order is the form that makes the Universe llke God.”
