How perfect the human body is! A great factory! It drinks water and the water goes to the stomach and to the kidneys and purifies the blood. Or take the heart, the lungs, the liver, the gallbladder, the pancreas, the brain, the nervous system, the senses, vision, hearing… And what can we say about mental powers and how all these systems work together in perfect harmony under the protection and providence of God! All things are under God’s providence. How many pine needles have each pine tree? Can you count them? God, however, knows them, and without His will, not one falls to the ground. Just as with the hairs of our heads, they are all numbered. He provides for the smallest details of our life: He loves us and protects us.
Saint Porphyrios, Wounded by Love
