Caring For Our Common Home
Five video series retreat on caring for our common home led by Fr. Aelred Niespolo O.S.B. of Saint Andrew's Abbey
CARING FOR OUR COMMON HOME
Recorded: Friday, July 3-Sunday, July 5, 2020
This workshop will center on the issues and implications of ecological and climate change. It will look at the biblical basis for the commission given to us by a loving God that we are to care for the earth, reflecting on the correct and proper relationship between humanity as caretaker to the rest of creation. In addition to scripture, two other documents will be referenced and used: Pope Francis I's encyclical Laudato Si, and the Califronia Bishops' letter of reflection on that encyclical.
Fr. Aelred Niespolo has been a monk of Valyermo since 2001 and was ordained to the priesthood in 2005. Having completed the Master of Theology program at Oxford University, he teaches at St. John's Seminary in Camarillo. He is editor of the Valyermo Chronicle and has served as Director of Oblates.
