Foreword by Elizabeth A. Johnson, CSJ


“In the community of saints, all together are companions in memory and hope. Together, all together, they are becoming something strange and growing and great, instruments of change. Green Saints for a Green Generation taps beautifully into this dynamic for the sake of our suffering Earth which cries out for no less.”—Elizabeth A. Johnson, CSJ

 It has been over eight years since Pope Francis, in Laudato Si’ established care for creation as one of the central themes of Catholic social teaching. Yet that ecological consciousness has yet to take root en masse among the Catholic faithful. In this book, young Catholic women of the “green generation” reflect on saints—canonized and not—who connected their faith to concern for the earth. By connecting well-loved saints to environmental responsibility, the contributors hope to encourage the not-yet informed to become active, inviting younger generations to join the ecological movement, and taking on the responsibility from our elders, newly shouldering the ecological burden for ourselves.
