September 22, 2019: A Sabbath for all Creation
Preaching for the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Marisa Vertrees offers a reflection on living the value of Sabbath:
"When we focus too much on consumption and material wealth, we harm ourselves, we harm others, and we harm creation. We focus on the wrong things, letting it pull us away from our relationship with God, and forgetting to step back and set aside time for prayer and for God."
Marisa Vertrees was the Organizing Director at the Global Catholic Climate Movement, an organization with volunteer leaders and member organizations in 92 countries, dedicated to engaging the Catholic community and grassroots in living out Pope Francis’ call in Laudato Si’ and halting global climate change.
