EARTH DAY Reflection

"Living Well - Living Well Together"

Thanks to the Holy Cross International Justice Office and to the Sisters of the Holy Cross for sharing these Earth Day reflections.

“As part of the unfolding universe story, we celebrate our kinship not only with other humans but also with all life forms. We begin to find our niche. We realize we are not only part of humankind but of Earthkind; we are not simply human beings but universe beings. As such we are distinguished not merely by reflective consciousness but by wondering intelligence as well. ...Along with gratitude, and reverence, wonder may be a key to release the flourishing potential of our species and our planet.”
