97. The Lord was able to invite others to be attentive to the beauty that there is in the world because he himself was in constant touch with nature, lending it an attention full of fondness and wonder. As he made his way throughout the land, he often stopped to contemplate the beauty sown by his Father, and invited his disciples to perceive a divine message in things: “Lift up your eyes, and see how the fields are already white for harvest” (Jn 4:35). “The kingdom of God is like a grain of mustard seed which a (sower) took and sowed in (the) field; it is the smallest of all seeds, but once it has grown, it is the greatest of plants”(Mt 13:31-32).
In addition to living in a time when people were more connected to nature, Jesus also communed with his Father in the setting of nature, in places apart from human habitation. As we know, it is easy to find oneself beyond the ordinary spaces of life when one is away from cities, homes, and other human structures.
