SEASON OF CREATION

1 September - 4 October

“I have heard their cry...I know their sufferings... Come, now! I will send you...I will be with you” (Ex 3: 1-12) “The Earth is our mother nourishing and protecting us in every moment, giving us air to breathe, fresh water to drink, food to eat, and healing herbs to cure us when we are sick. When you realize the Earth is so much more than simply your environment, you'll be moved to protect her in the same way as you would yourself. This is the kind of awareness, the kind of awakening that we need. And the future of the planet depends on whether we're able to cultivate this insight or not. The Earth and all species on Earth are in real danger. Yet, if we can develop a deep relationship with the Earth, we'll have enough love, strength, and awakening in order to change our way of life.” (Source: Thich Nhat Hahn)
