Care for Earth: Home of All Living Creatures

By Sally Ann Brickner

Care for Earth presentation YouTubeAbout 120 persons gathered at Marian University on October 13th for a symposium on Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si’. In her keynote address Sister Dianne Bergant, CSA related that the biblical creation story has often been misinterpreted. She emphasized that the human species is part of the natural world, that humanity is interdependent with the natural world. Humans should not dominate over but rather care for all creation. Subsequently four panelists elaborated briefly on aspects of the encyclical: the science of climate change and the economic implications of making a transition to a fossil-fuel free economy and reduced consumption. The audience also saw exemplary examples of care for creation at Monroe Clinic and by the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes.

Below you can watch a video from this presentation with keynote speaker Sister Dianne Bergant, CSA. The panelists video with Sister Jean addresses Moral Choices along with Questions and Answers which can be viewed here.
