God as Watermark

"God writes his name on the soul of every man. Reason and conscience are the God within us in the natural order. The Fathers of the early Church were wont to speak of the wisdom of Plato and Aristotle as the unconscious Christ within us. Men are like so many books issuing from the Divine press, and if nothing else be written on them, at least the name of the  Author is indissolubly engraved on the title page. God is like the watermark on paper, which may be written over without ever being obscured."

-Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, 'Life of Christ'
