Loretto Values an Attentive Relationship with Earth

Posted on April 13, 2020, by Loretto Community

Standing in solidarity with Earth is more than a ministry or special project. It is a way of being, a mindset that recognizes our human dependence on the larger whole.  Plants, animals, air, water, humans, soil – we are all part of the same biosphere. John Muir said it well: “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.”

 A commitment to simplicity and the understanding that working for justice and peace extends to Earth has long shaped Loretto’s practices and lifestyles. Today we seek to continually discern how we might evolve in solidarity with Earth, whether through mitigating climate change, healing ecological degradation, or better understanding the role of the human as one species among many.
