To Love is to Heal

DRIVEN BY LOVE


In this issue we will examine how we impact creation and how creation impacts us. Pope Francis through Laudato Si’ reminds us that we are in relationship with the earth much as we are with our own families. We examine two traumatic events: COVID-19 and a nuclear accident and their impact both on humans and the environment. Together we will explore ways that we can heal ourselves, others and the environment through love and action.
