The Sisters in our community in Galway celebrating the close of the celebration of the month of Creation in September 2021. Their Sharing on the Creation Table began with contributions from everyone in the Community.

The Dawn Chorus brought joy to our hearts as we listened to thrushes, wrens, blackbirds, robins, chaffinches, doves, pheasants and a host of others. We imitated them with by singing ‘O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder’.

Scripture Readings from Genesis Wisdom and Colossians were interspersed with personal sharings around the significance of what each brought to the table. Our presence to one another meant that some gifts struck us afresh and thus the sharing was rich.

The lovely Canticle of Creation by Angela Creagh was spoken aloud.

Lastly ‘Care for Our Common Home’ a booklet brought out by ‘The Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary’ was introduced. Each sister committed to reading this booklet it is hoped to move towards using more ‘Green’ cleaning products as a result.

The Galway Community.

Pope Francis’ climate change encyclical

Pope Francis’ first encyclical “Laudato Si: On the Care of our Common Home” is focused on the idea of ‘integral ecology’, connecting care of the natural world with justice for the poorest and most vulnerable people. Only by radically ‘reshaping our relationships with God, with our neighbours and with the natural world, he says, can we hope to tackle the threats facing our planet today. Science, he insists, is the best tool by which we can listen to the cry of the earth, while dialogue and education are the two keys that can “help us to escape the spiral of self-destruction which currently engulfs us”.

At the heart of the Pope’s reflection is the question: “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?” The answers he suggests call for profound changes to political, economic, cultural and social systems as well as to our individual lifestyles.
