Reflections on the April 21st Easter Sunday Bombings in Sri Lanka and Our Care for God’s Creation

On this week’s episode of Just Love, Monsignor Kevin Sullivan talks about the tragic bombings in Sri Lanka and also a Catholic climate movement.

Marion Boteju is the Corporate Secretary and Chief of Staff for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York. Marion’s family is from Sri Lanka and she spent part of her childhood in that country. She talks to Msgr. Sullivan about some of her reflections on the terrible bombings that took place in Sri Lanka at several Churches and Hotels on this Easter Sunday, and what – in her opinion – should be done to address religiously based violence in her family’s native land.

Kelly Moltzen is a Program Manager for the Institute for Family Health’s Bronx Health REACH Project and a member of the Metro New York Catholic Climate Movement here in New York City. During this early May week when we are all appreciating the new bloom of springtime, Kelly shares with Msgr. Sullivan a bit about the activities of the Metro New York Catholic Climate Movement.

    Thank you to both interviewees on the May 10 show. Listening to you, I was reminded of Pope Francis’ call to us in Laudato Si’: to recognize our interconnectedness and interdependence with all of God’s Creation, human and nonhuman. As a member of the Metro New York Catholic Climate Movement, I want to recognize and thank the Archdiocese of New York for the grant they provided that allowed us to host a successful October Care For Creation Conference. The networking, collaboration and support begun that day continues. How to let pastors, parish leaders and others know about Care for Creation parish teams and initiatives here in NY is a challenge! Great things are happening.
