FRANCOIS RABELAIS

     “The Father who directs all that is and that is made according to His free will and His pleasure.”

(Febvre, 1962, 260)

 

     “ When you say the word God, what does it mean to you? To me it means an Eternal Spirit who has no beginning, who has no end, such as no greater, no wiser or better can be conceived; By one act of His omnipotence  He created all things, visible and invisible. His admirable wisdom regulates and governs the whole universe; His goodness nourishes and preserves all of His creation.

(Ibid., 262)

 

     “Without (God’s) sustenance and government all things, in a moment, would become nothing, just as they had been created for nothing.”

(Ibid., 263)

 

     “What takes place is not what we wish or ask for, but what pleases Jesus Christ, our Lord whom God had established before the heavens were made . . . ”

(Ibid., 263)

 

     “Almighty God, who has created all things.”

(Ibid., 264)

 

     “There is no other ruler besides God the Creator.”

(Ibid., 264)
