Animals: Man and Beast

Ecology: Issue Three

The panoply of creatures with which we are surrounded is an expression of the glory of God. Our relationship to that world is thus infused with respect: not because we worship nature, but because we worship God through the very creation which manifests him, and is sanctified all over again by his incarnation as a human being at the heart of it. Something which gives a particular signification to the role of man as pivotal in this hierarchy.
