Thoughts for Musings

  • Where, in this pandemic, do I hear the cry of Earth as well as the cry of the most vulnerable people?
  • As I reflect on the degradation of Earth in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, where do I find hope?
  • What change has happened in the life of our Congregation/ Institute during this pandemic that I hope continues after the pandemic ends?

In my hearing these voices and seeing these presentations on Mercy and the Degradation of Earth:


In all the voices – theologian, artist, distinct voice, scientist, minister, global thinker, prayer maker – which voice speaks most passionately to me about Mercy and the degradation of Earth?


In all the voices, which one speaks something that I do not want to hear?


In each voice, what do I learn about Mercy which gives me, and all of us, the courage to go on in our struggle to bring an end to the degradation of Earth?

Opportunities for Sharing:

  • Who do I know who would love to see this, or part of this, process?
  • How could I get it to them?
  • What is something I have read or seen or heard elsewhere that really connects with this process, that's too good to keep to myself?
