“Being prayerful is seeing the world through a heart much greater than our own.” ~ Sister Sharon Zayac, OP, Director of Jubilee Farm
“Self-improvement on the part of individuals will not by itself remedy the extremely complex situation facing our world today… these problems must be addressed by community networks and not simply by the sum of individual good deeds…
The ecological conversion needed to bring about lasting change is also a community conversion.” ~ Pope Francis
“While individual actions will not alone dismantle systems of evil (or injustice), those systems will only be dismantled if individuals do act.” ~ Cynthia D. Moe-Lobeda
In October of 2015 Sister Sharon Zayac, OP shared a presentation at the Scared Heart Convent motherhouse, On Care for Our Common Home – Laudato Si, covering environmental aspects of the recent encyclical, Laudito Si’, from Pope Francis. The presentation goes into a deep exploration of the major environmental points of the encyclical by Pope Francis and shares what we can do to care for our common home before the damage that has been inflicted by humankind grows to a point where the damage can’t be reversed. Sister Sharon has been noted as one of Springfield’s most knowledgeable presenters on environmental topics.
