Current Reflection

Question of the Week
Adult Question
:  How can you prepare yourself to be nourished by Jesus?
Children's Question:  How can you share what you have received from Jesus with others?

All Creation Is Singing God's Praise
Every act of cruelty towards any creature is "contrary to human dignity."  We can hardly consider ourselves to be fully loving if we disregard any aspect of reality: "Peace, justice, and the preservation of creation are three absolutely interconnected themes, which cannot be separated and treated individually without once again falling into reductionism."  (Laudato Si of the Holy Father Francis)
How I Can Help...

  • Monarch butterfly populations are declining due to loss of habitat.  To assure a future for monarchs, conservation and restoration of milkweeds needs to become a national priority. (Chip Taylor, Director, Monarch Watch)  Monarch larvae appear to feed exclusively on milkweeds in the genus Asclepias.  Now is the time to plant seeds!  You can buy milkweed seeds from Monarch Watch or even on Amazon.  Do your part to help save the Monarchs!

How does care for creation relate to our identity as Christians?  Watch this space for ideas and inspiration in the coming weeks.
