Land Ethic: A Covenant of Peace with Earth

We are pleased to share our CSJP Land Ethic, affirmed by the Congregation in the Autumn of 2017.

Our Land Ethic, as an expression of the CSJP charism in terms of our desired relationship with the Land, calls us to a Covenant of Peace with Earth. This Land Ethic articulates a process of learning sustainable ways of Earth/human relationship that has been on-going in the Congregation for many years. Through the Land Ethic, we commit ourselves to continue and deepen this relationship. Our Land Ethic gives expression to our desire to enlarge the boundaries of community to include soil, rocks, air, water, plants and animals.

Land Ethic: A Covenant of Peace with Earth

"So Christ is our model and in order to imitate Him we have to do strange things – things that seem almost inexplicable, but at the last days, when our work is taken off the loom of life, we shall see the beauty that comes into our soul by this work."

Mother Evangelista (Honoria Gaffney)
