Ascensión González, r.a.
“Todo lo que ven nuestros ojos es un don que Dios nos regala para elevarnos hacia Él”. (MME. Instr. 15-07-1881) “En la Asunción todo viene de Jesucristo, todo es de Jesucristo, todo debe ser para Jesucristo”.
“La tierra es un lugar de gloria para Dios”.
Cuando MME hacía estas afirmaciones tal vez no sabía que estaba apuntando a una situación que estaría en plena vigencia en nuestro tiempo, y que sus hermanas y los laicos asuncionistas decidirían vivir el seguimiento de (...)

en - The greening of all things

Formation - 9 May 2018

`You understand so little of what is around you because you do not use what is within you’ said Hildegard of Bingen (1098 -1178) She often used the word viriditas meaning the greening of things from within, a sort of photosynthesis, to use an image from the plant world, plants that receive sunshine and transform it into life and energy. She saw too, the connection between the physical world and the divine Presence,` the energy that is the soul and seed of everything’ calling us to `become who (...)

Marie Claire Isifi, R.A.
“… the whole of Creation is eagerly waiting for God to reveal his sons…..Creation still retains the hope of being freed, like us, from its slavery to decadence, to enjoy the same freedom and glory as the children of God” (Romans 8, 19-21).
These verses from the Letter to the Romans place us before the reality of Creation’s groaning in one great act of giving birth as it awaits its full deliverance. These verses are also a very explicit statement of hope for a (...)

Mary Cecilia Claparols, R.A.
Biblical Foundations of Ecology
The Christian scriptures, particularly an interpretation of the Creation story in Genesis 1, have been faulted by Lynn White, a cultural historian, as one of the main causes for the whole mechanistic and domination model of relationship between humans and the cosmos. He goes on to say that Christianity, in destroying “pagan animism,” made it possible to exploit nature in a mood of indifference to the feelings of natural objects. (...)

fr - Investissement et climat

Formation - 10 mars 2018

Parmi les gestes qu’il est possible de faire pour contribuer à la transition énergétique, il en est un qui pourrait se montrer très efficace. Il est accessible à tous ceux et celles qui disposent d’une épargne financière, placée sous une forme ou sous une autre. De plus en plus d’entre nous se demandent comment est placée cette épargne et s’il ne serait pas possible de la réorienter, dans « le sens de la transition », et notamment en faveur du climat. […] Un frein sur les capitaux accessibles est (...)

es - Fronteras y muros, frente a las personas. Autopistas para el capital

Formation - 4 de febrero de 2018

Es la madrugada del 15 de enero de 2018. Fátima lleva desde las dos haciendo cola ante la frontera de Ceuta. Junto a ella hay varios cientos más de mujeres cargadas con enormes fardos de mercancías. Sólo tendrán dos horas para pasar de Marruecos a Ceuta por Tarajal II.
Están nerviosas, cansadas, algunas llevan hasta 90 kilos encima. De la comisión que saquen hoy depende la comida de sus hijos. El nerviosismo crece. Parece que van a abrir antes la frontera, o cerrar del todo, como hace unas (...)

fr - Plastic debris, here, there and everywhere

Formation - 3 février 2018

Ditch Plastic ! What did you say ? It is everywhere, in everything, it is almost indestructible, it versatile and durable. It is a product of oil. Why ditch it ?
Well, because it is almost indestructible, the vast majority of plastic is not biodegradable, it makes its way down stream and rivers into the ocean, more and more of it, or fills up landfill where it leaches toxins into the soil and water table.
There are five massive wind driven ocean gyres, the largest being the Great (...)

fr - La conférence des parties sur le climat (COP23)

Formation - 14 décembre 2017

La conférence des parties sur le climat (COP23) s’est tenue à Bonn du 6 au 17 novembre : occasion pour les Etats de réaffirmer leurs intentions de contribuer à un monde moins carboné dans les années qui viennent. On sait toutefois les résistances énormes de certains chefs d’Etat, comme Donald Trump.
Mais on sait peut-être moins la façon inquiétante dont évoluent la production et la consommation d’énergies fossiles : la production de charbon dédiée à la production d’électricité continue à augmenter dans (...)

“La paz no es solamente la ausencia de la guerra; Mientras haya pobreza, racismo, discriminación y Exclusión difícilmente podremos alcanzar un Mundo de paz.” Rigoberta Menchú
Queremos que nossas comunidades sejam pacíficas, inclusivas e justas, porém, constantemente esquecemos de que tudo está interconectado em uma vivencia de forma articulada e de interdependência com toda a criação. Toda a questão tecnológica do sistema atual econômico financeiro-produtivo precisa ser mudada, transformada, para que (...)

en - Oceans in deep trouble

Formation - 1 September 2017

There is the sea, vast and wide
with its moving swarms past counting
living things great and small.
The ships are moving there
and the monsters you made to play with...
May the glory of the lord last forever
May the Lord rejoice in His works. Ps 103
Life began in the oceans 3.8 billion years ago. Without the oceans our planet would be as inhospitable as Mars. It is thanks to the oceans that we exist. If the ocean dies then so do we. The oceans are massive pulsing (...)
