We must begin NOW to create a “new normal,” refusing to go back to the world before COVID-19. Our experience of resurrection and death transformed into new life – even one with the scars of our woundedness – can guide and motivate us.
God loves this world that God created at the beginning of time. Through our prayers and our actions, we return some of the love that God has bestowed on us.
Earth Day is a reminder that environmental justice and climate change solutions must move beyond a new appreciation of creation to include listening to and learning from the poor and marginalized of our own communities and the voices of those from around the world.
