Dear friends,

Today at Eucharist we are going to celebrate Earth Day! Theologian Elizabeth Johnson cites a passage from the Book of Job that captures the spirit of the day: “Ask the animals and let them teach you, the birds of the air will tell you the truth. Listen to the plants of the earth and learn from them: let the fish of the sea become your teachers.

Today’s readings celebrate two special women.  In the first reading, the hungry Elijah begs a woman for a cup of water and some bread.  She and her son are starving and have just enough bread for a final meal before they anticipate dying from starvation.
