“Let man live at a distance from God, and the universe remains neutral or hostile to him. But let man believe in God, and immediately all around him the elements, even the irksome, of the inevitable organize themselves into a friendly whole, ordered to the ultimate success of life. For the believer everything is still, externally and individually, what it is for all the world; and yet God’s power solicitously adapts the whole to serve him. At every moment it in some way re-creates the universe expressly for the man who prays to it. ‘Credenti omnia convertuntur in bonum.’ “
