Words for the Day

The world … did not have to ‘become’ something created ‘complete’ in the divine creation at the world’s morning. Initially it need be no more than: creature. What is creation from God’s point of view can only mean, from the world’s, the bursting forth of the consciousness of its creatureliness, its being-created.

Franz Rosenzweig, *The Star of Redemption*, translated by William W. Hallo from the 2nd edition of 1930, University of Notre Dame Press, 2014/1985, 120.
