Example text

It is all part of the “knowledge of the Lord”. Man remains in an exceptional position within this harmony; his is the responsibility for creation, but this stewardship is of such a nonviolent and danger-free kind that a child can perform it. This is a hope and a vision. But at the same time it is the true essence of nature, albeit hidden beneath the surface and awaiting its perfection. According to the Christian faith, these times have already begun in Jesus, the son of Mary, the Christ.
