Catholic Resources Reflection by Fr. Barron

Fr. Barron on "Nature and the Biblical God"

"Nature and the Biblical God"



The actress Julia Roberts appears in a new series of YouTube videos which have become YouTube sensations. Famous actors and actresses voice different aspects of the natural world, from the ocean, to the rain forest, to redwood trees. Roberts herself plays Mother Nature and though at first her video advocacy may seem to be little more than environmental extremism, the video makes theological significant points about nature's relationships to us and to God.
