Product Description

Nature leads us to God.  We need simply to wait and to listen.  Creation is our sacred story and it is still going on within and all around us.  “Each creature has its own purpose, none is superfluous. The entire material universe speaks of God’s love, his boundless affection for us.  Seas, water, mountains: everything as it were, a caress of God”. (Pope Francis in Laudato Si, 84). We welcome one another into a collective growing in ecological awareness and its spirituality that makes the healing of Earth a way of life, an evolving reality of life. Time for a walk in nature to soak up the beauty of Spring at the Franciscan Spiritual Center will be included.
