"We are losing our attitude of wonder, of contemplation, of listening to creation and thus we no longer manage to interpret within it what Benedict XVI calls 'the rhythm of the love-story between God and man.'"
+ Pope Francis
A brief Christmas greeting
From COP24 to Christmas, the Catholic eco-advocacy world has offered much to post about. But the increasing needs of my elderly mom and other writing obligations have slowed things here at Catholic Ecology—for now, anyway.
But I can’t let this week pass without wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas—and to assure you that the ever-popular Ten Best Eco Stories installment for 2018 will be up for New Year’s reading.
For now, I’d like to thank all of you for making Catholic Ecology the go-to blog for bringing the gospel into the eco-issues of our age. And what better time to reflect on that than the Octave of Christmas, when we celebrate the culmination of the coming of the Word into creation.
And so know of my prayers and best wishes for you and yours this Christmas. And stay tuned for the coming recap of a rather important year for us Catholics who care deeply about all things ecology.
About the Blog
Catholic Ecology posts my regular column in the Rhode Island Catholic, as well as scientific and theological commentary about the latest eco-news, both within and outside of the Catholic Church. What is contained herein is but one person's attempt to teach and defend the Church's teachings - ecological and otherwise. As such, I offer all contents of this blog for approval of the bishops of the Church. It is my hope that nothing herein will lead anyone astray from truth.
