In The Dominican Tradition: Creation Story
Master of Arts in Earth Literacy
Many Christians struggle with an Earth-centered spirituality (ecospirituality), a spirituality that places humans within the context of creation and not at its apex. As a modern culture we have lost the understanding of our relationship to the rest of creation, an understanding that was common to all just a few short centuries ago. Our Catholic Christian faith provides a rich heritage of Earth-spirituality. It is imperative that Catholic women religious take the leadership role of teaching and modeling a responsible and sustainable relationship with Earth. By virtue of their founding and their ancient history, there is a particular imperative for Dominican women to take up this role.
