Season of Creation: 2022 Theme – Listen to the Voice of Creation.

Brigidine Sisters and their colleagues are mindful of the urgent plea of Laudato Si’ to respond to the cry of Earth and peoples rendered poor.

The Season of Creation invites us to further reflect, raise awareness and take action with reverence for our Common Home.

In his message for this time, Pope Francis calls us to use the season to “cultivate our ecological conversion.”

“If we learn how to listen, we can hear in the voice of creation a kind of dissonance.  On the one hand, we can hear a sweet song in praise of our beloved Creator; on the other, an anguished plea, lamenting our mistreatment of this our common home”.
Pope Francis

“… Love of nature can only be authentic in solidarity with indigenous peoples who do not distinguish themselves from the plants, animals, rivers and mountains which inspire their languages practices, and spirit. So loving one must include the other.”    Fatima Measham.
