Inferno on the ground; toxic air above.
Fleeing; can’t breathe.
Hurricane winds from above; surging waters from below.
Houses gone; life is drowned.
Are you listening?
Citizens of the U.S.A., are you paying attention?
This is the Season of Creation, September 1 until
October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.
What we do to creation, we do to ourselves,
for we are part of creation — not separate, but one with all.
