You are here
The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it,
the world, and those who live in it. (Psalm 24, 1)
Every part of this earth is sacred.
Whatever befalls the earth
befalls the children of the earth.
This we know, the earth does not belong to us:
we belong to the earth.
This we know, all things are connected:
like the blood which unites one family.
This we know, whatever we do to the web:
we do to ourselves.
