Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
Because of my compassion, the sun wanted to be near me all night, and the earth deeded her fields to me, and all in heaven said, “We have voted you our governor; tell us your divine mandate.” And I did, and God will never revoke it:
Nothing in existence is turned away.
More tender is my Lord’s heart than any heart has ever been. So, when the divine realm asked me to govern it with one simple rule, I looked into His eyes and then knew what to say to any angel who might serve as a sentry to God:
No creature should be turned away.
– St. Thomas Aquinas.
