Care of the Earth

“It was not for any fault on the part of creation that it was made unable to attain its purpose.  It was made so by God; but creation still retains the hope of being freed, like us, from its slavery to decadence, to enjoy the same freedom and glory as the children of God.

From the beginning till now the entire creation, as we know has been groaning in one great act of giving birth.”   (Romans 8:22)

In light of the urgent reality of global warming, we need to be more attentive to how our planet is groaning due to years of exploitation.  By taking small steps daily we can fulfil more faithfully our God-given responsibility to be stewards of creation and missionaries of communion, sent to bring ‘all creation back to God’.

As women apostles of the third millennium we feel called to deeper reflection on the unfolding mystery of the Creation Story and our place in it, and to allow it to enrich our Spirituality and all our Ministries.
