And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendor, of You Most High, he bears your likeness. We praise You, Lord, for Twitter, in the heavens you have made the tweet short, quick, and easy. We praise You, Lord, for Brothers LinkedIn and Flickr, professional and a sea of networks, by which You cherish the photos of what you have gifted us with. We praise You, Lord, for Sister Facebook, filled with family and friends, news, and connections all across the globe. We praise You, Lord, for Sister Earth, who sustains us with her fruits, colored flowers, and herbs. Caroline Cerveny, SSJ-TOSF created this contemporary take on St. Francis' well known prayer, Canticle of the Creatures. See - http://bit.ly/itbJnr for the original prayer.
