“Wuhan Chastisement” Mother Earth and the devil’s plan – Fr. Mark Goring

“The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister. We can be proud of her beauty, since we have the same father; but she has no authority over us; we have to admire, but not to imitate. This gives to the typically Christian pleasure in this earth a strange touch of lightness that is almost frivolity. Nature was a solemn mother to the worshipers of Isis and Cybele. Nature was a solemn mother to Wordsworth or to Emerson. But Nature is not solemn to Francis of Assisi or to George Herbert. To St. Francis, Nature is a sister, and even a younger sister: a little, dancing sister, to be laughed at as well as loved.” G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

“Yes, we need to repent to the Lord Jesus for the ways we have been bad stewards of His creation. We don’t pray to Mother Earth.”
