We made a new video! The Magnificat is a look at Mary’s Magnificat through the lens of social justice and nonviolence. This video uses the verses of the Magnificat to highlight the contemporary issues of war, immigration, Native American reservation poverty, Ebola, hunger and homelessness, Church inequality, violence against women and children, and racism. It is an opportunity to reflect on our world and to reflect on our call to be peacemakers and to bring about justice through nonviolence action.

SNN1604P-620_1728824aPope Francis intends to issue a papal encyclical on climate change in early 2015.

“Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will; or, even less, is the property of only a few: Creation is a gift, it is a wonderful gift that God has given us, so that we care for it and we use it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude.” (May 21, 2014)

“Take good care of creation. St. Francis wanted that. People occasionally forgive, but nature never does. If we don’t take care of the environment, there’s no way of getting around it.” (April 22, 2013)
