The sun is visible in the middle or center of our world and controls the group of planets surrounding it. Like a king seated on his royal throne, he not only illuminates all the planets with his light-giving rays, serving as the lamp of the world, but even regulates their motions and allows them to share in his properties of warmth and life. For indeed, without his vital force in the reproduction of animals, all generative efforts on our earth would be unavailing. Here, then, in this Creation marvelous beyond all others, can the unique omnipotence of God properly be seen.
