Excerpts from an eco-spirituality retreat given in Assisi, Italy, by Richard Rohr, OFM.
In 2009, Richard led a retreat where deep reflection on Scripture was blended with walks in the countryside of St. Francis. The hills of Assisi speak of the "brotherhood" and "sisterhood" of the natural world, of which we, the human family, are an integral part.
This program is an excerpt from that retreat, which communicates the essence of the "Great Chain of Being" and offers a glimpse of a "new cosmology" that will help people of faith appreciate the importance of living in harmony with God's creation. Richard gives some practical instruction on how to do this.
This retreat illuminates Richard's journey deeper into Franciscan eco-spirituality, a perspective of crucial importance for today's endangered earth. Refresh your faith and your perspective of yourself and the universe.
