Greetings from the Carmelite JPIC Team,

Pope Francis' new encyclical on the Environment is soon to be released; and

with people of every nation, we also celebrate World Environment Day on 5th JUNE.

Attached is the June e-newsletter for your prayerful reflection on these two events.

On a summer morning

 I sat down on a hillside

to think about God

a worthy pastime.

Near me, I saw a single cricket;

it was moving the grains of the hillside

this way and that way.

How great was its energy,

how humble its effort.

Let us hope

it will always be like this,

 each of us going on

 in our inexplicable ways

 building the universe.


Mary Oliver,Song of the Builders
