The Universe of His Handiwork

Detail of rose on decorative planter outside St. Michael's Cathedral.

The perfect mind is the one that through genuine faith knows in supreme ignorance the supremely unknowable, and in gazing on the universe of his handiwork has received from God comprehensive knowledge of his Providence and judgment in it, as far as is allowable to men.
