“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – – Romans 8:22




From the beginning till now

the entire creation, as we know,

has been groaning in one great act of giving birth.


– Romans 8:22






Saint Paul sets this vision of faith on a burning and dramatic image:

the entire creation is compared to a woman who suffers and moans in labour pain

– a suffering that is always mixed with joy.


The world is in a state of anticipation.

This state of suffering anticipation

is caused by the fact that creation, through no fault of its own,

has been dragged into a state of godlessness.


But there is hope for creation…

because God intends to rescue it.


As true believers, we suffer with hope

and look forward, together with the rest of creation, to a glorious time

when the Lord will establish His own perfect kingdom of peace and righteousness.






Come Lord Jesus, come!

Come and renew Your creation.

Come, Lord, and re-establish Your kingdom of peace and of righteousness.
