Lex credendi, lex vivendi: A response to Laudato Si'

In the Global Sisters Report, Sister Ilia Delio, OSF, offers a profound critique of Laudato Si'. The transformation of evolutionary consciousness must occur within religious institutions (i.e., the Churches). Our conception of the human person and of who Christ is must center in an "evolutionary cosmos" permeated with God's love. When we transform our thinking and our prayer rituals we will be more likely to change our actions, our relationships with Sister Mother Earth and all creation.
