By Sr. Sally Ann Brickner, OSF, working with the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes.

In a reflection day on Care for Earth, held September 26th at the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross in Green Bay, Sister Dianne Bergant, CSA interrelated Sacred Scripture and major themes from Laudato Si’.  First, humanity is not at the peak of creation but instead is within the web of life. Accepting this truth counters anthropocentrism and domination systems. Second, as part of God’s creation humans are interdependent within the web of all life.  Finally, with Job humans are called to silent wonder at God’s marvelous handiwork., and our utter dependence on God. At the end of the day Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross and their associates received a ballot to vote on a corporate stance on Care for Earth.  The photos show Sister Dianne with the audience, members of the planning committee standing by the mosaic for Mother Earth, and the solar installation at the Motherhouse.
