Dorothy Sayers: The Universe

"[The Church] must insist strongly that the whole material universe is an expression and incarnation of the creative energy of God. For this reason, all good and creative handling of the material universe is holy and beautiful, and all abuse of the material universe is a crucifixion of the body of Christ. The whole question of the right use to be made of art, of the intellect, and of the material resources of the world is bound up in this. Because of this, the exploitation of man or of matter for commercial uses stands condemned, together with all debasement of the arts and perversions of the intellect."
