Thursday, September 21st Meditation during Season of Creation

The divine communicates to us primarily through the language of the natural world.  Not to hear the natural world is not to hear the divine.  Thomas Berry

Suggested donation:  €5.00 (to support the work of the Centre)

In person and online event..

We invite you to join us for the second Mediation during the Season of Creation.

The theme for the 2023 Season of Creation is inspired by the words from the Prophet Amos: “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” Amos 5: 24. The invitation is to join the river of justice and peace. St. Brigid, a woman of justice and peace, is renowned for her closeness to nature and her affinity with animals. We can draw inspiration from her and our Celtic ancestors and hold in reverence and respect all creation.

There is an urgency for all of us to make visible peace with Earth and on Earth, while at the same time, justice calls us to repentance and a change of attitude and actions.

How can we contribute to the flow of the mighty river of justice and peace in this Season of Creation?  What can we do to heal our common home so that it can once again teem with life?

First, let us join the mighty river by transforming our hearts.  This is essential for any other transformation to occur.

Transforming our hearts could lead to transforming our lifestyles, and the public policies ruling our societies.

“If we approach nature and the environment without this openness to awe and wonder, if we no longer speak the language of fraternity and beauty in our relationship with the world, our attitude will be that of masters, consumers, ruthless exploiters, unable to set limits on our immediate needs. By contrast, if we feel intimately united with all that exists, then sobriety and care will well up spontaneously.”
― Pope FrancisENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI' ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME

Our individual actions during the Season of Creation are important. Celebrating creation, participating in cleanups, planting trees and reducing our carbon footprint are some of the immediate actions we can take.
