Passion of the Earth
The Passion of the Earth will be the theme as participants reflect on the diminishment of the Earth and of Life in the destruction of species, the loss of habitat, oil spills, the chemical pollution of water air, and soil, global warming, increased human violence and oppression. Earth Day and Good Friday occur in proximity this year. The Passion of the Earth will lift up that coincidence. The works of art in the current exhibition, Water: Flow and Form, will provide 14 stations where, as in the traditional stations of the cross, viewers may contemplate the suffering of the earth thanks to human indifference and exploitation. Anne Ferrara, who has planned the ceremony, notes that “every loss must be grieved, or we become paralyzed by anger, denial, fear, hopelessness, depression. We lose our energy for life. Resurrection, hope, new life are possible as we emerge from our grieving.”
The Passion of the Earth will be observed from 12 noon until 3 p.m. Those who would join in grieving for our Mother Earth may come any time in those three hours. All are welcome.
