World Environment Day: 5 June

On this important day, we remember our connection with Mother Earth and the wisdom we can draw from all living beings. “See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will God not much more clothe you.” Jesus

“It cannot be emphasised enough how everything is interconnected. Time and space are not independent of one another, and not even atoms of subatomic particles can be considered in isolation.”  Pope Francis

“In this graced moment, we are becoming more deeply aware of our mission to live within one web of life: our common home.” Brigidine Congregational Forum 2016

How does seeing everything as connected ‘within one web of life’ change the way you see the world?
