That's why He created man.
And then, after however long, the first thing God deemed not good was realizing that man was alone. Loneliness was the first thing that God condemned, and to resolve this, He created woman. (Do you see how man and woman's creations were meant to solve similar aches?)
Right there we have what Pope John Paul II calls the four reconciliations, or the four relationships: one with God, with oneself, with others, and with creation itself. What happens shortly after man and woman are together? Sin, which ruptures all of these relationships.
After a while, all of this beauty in my life began to fade as I felt loneliness creep in as I became more settled in Philadelphia. And here's where Satan began to dupe me. Just as He lied to Eve in the garden, He began to use my sins to increase my isolation with myself. After each fall, I rose feeling guilty, disgusted, ashamed, angry, and horrified that I hurt my God once more. He was trying to make me feel alone even with myself, and praise God I understood this in time.
Humans are meant to be relational creatures in the image and likeness of our Holy, and what reconciles this is the Cross. That's why Jesus came down to earth, so that we may never be alone and have a relationship with the Father.
So. I want to hear from you. Is beauty no longer enough when it is not shared? Is something beautiful if it is not appreciated? Share your thoughts below!
