Jubilee for the Earth” is a podcast mini-series about biodiversity and our sacred story produced by the Missionary Society of St. Columban. We are a Society of priests and lay people who live and share the good news of the Gospel by working with those who are poor and exploited, including the earth.
Over the course of twelve episodes, we’ll explore the beauty of biodiversity and the threats it faces. We’ll travel around the world to hear from Columbans who are working to renew the face of the Earth. Grounded in Catholic Social Teaching, we hope that this podcast will help us all to see how caring for our common home is fundamental to our lives as people of faith and as global citizens.
How Can You Get Involved?
In 2015, Laudato Si' reminded Catholics of a fundamental Biblical truth: that all creatures are filled with God's love. Read Laudato Si's teaching on biodiversity in paragraphs 32-42 and 62-100.
This study guide is a companion to the podcast and can be used by an individual or a group. It includes three reflection questions and one activity for each episode.
