Earth Day 2014

News April 21Medical Mission Sisters have long marked Earth Day, first celebrated on April 22, 1970, ”to promote ecology and respect for life on our planet.”  We continue to explore how to deepen our healing charism from the ecological perspective.  At our last General Chapter we noted, “The Earth has its own potential to organize and heal itself if human beings stop exploiting it.  Understanding ourselves more fully as part of the whole Earth community brings us to a spirit of kinship with all of life.”
