THE GREAT STORY OF OUR COMMON HOME   THE GREAT WORK OF LAUDATO SI'

 
In light of the most recent and urgent report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC),* people of faith and conscience are more challenged than ever to imagine a way forward, a way to restore "Our Common Home."

From the star-dust of pre-history to the carbon-dust of post-modernity, the climate of our Earth has undergone stupendous changes - and in this present age, the most challenging of all.  How are we to comprehend this moment of destiny for human-kind, for living-kind?  How are we to make our way forward to our common home, restored to stability and beauty?   What wisdom will guide us, what spirit empower us?

These are the questions we shall entertain in contemplative engagement with Father Joseph Mitchell, CP, whose mentor, Father Thomas Berry, CP, transmitted to him gifts of wisdom and insight to see the possibilities as well as the perils of our present global reality.  

Join us to explore the mysterious and miraculous dimensions of our common cosmic home, which hold the promise of a viable future.  With the North Star of Laudato Si' to guide us, we may journey toward a new horizon of hope if we pledge to take up The Great Work of healing and restoring Our Common Home.
Joseph Mitchell, CP
