This photo-meditation — linking the Eucharist with our current environmental crisis — is inspired by Mass On The World, an essay by priest-scientist Teilhard de Chardin.
In these meditations Teilhard’s earthy Eucharistic vision is shared by contemporary visionaries who call us to a deeper awareness of Earth as a Divine gift we’re called to cherish and celebrate.
