An Amazing Story from Africa

Brigidine Sister Loretta Brennan CSB shares from Kenya the amazing story of Tony Rinaudo, an Australian who for thirty years has been re-establishing tree growth in Africa.  His work has brought life and hope to areas where vegetation struggled to survive.

This story is a reminder of Pope Francis’ words:

‘Environmental education should facilitate making the leap towards the transcendent which gives ecological ethics its deepest meaning. It needs educators capable of helping people to grow in solidarity, responsibility and compassionate care.’ (Laudato Si # 211).

May we be inspired by the story of Tony Rinaudo to be imaginative in our care for Earth and to daily give thanks for Earth’s care of us and of all living beings.
