A Martian Sunset: Seeing Beyond What We Can See

Francis of Assisi must have known, at least intuitively, that there is only one enduring spiritual insight and everything else follows from it: “The visible world is an active doorway to the invisible world, and the invisible world is much larger than the visible.” A union of the material and the spiritual worlds exists beyond what we can see fully.  This is what the incarnation of “Christ” came to do for all who have limited vision.  Christ embodied both that which we could see and not see.  He was a prototype that married the visible and invisible together, teaching that ‘in Christ’ we can do the same.

Mars SunsetTake this sunset over Mars, finally for the first time, on Curiosity’s 956th solar Mars day — April 15, 2015, to all us Earthlings this capture lets us see the colors of Mars sunset.  We get a glimpse at what we have not seen fully until this day.  May it cause us to pay attention closer today so we might see beyond the visible, to real but yet seen world of the divine.
