Earth Rights = Human Rights

According to the recent article by Elise Garcia, OP,  to Global Sisters’ Report at National Catholic Reporter (NCR) 

A groundbreaking study examining 100 incidents of co-violations of human rights and rights of nature was released Dec. 3 at a COP21 civil-society presentation. The report highlighted a growing trend linking violations of rights of people and rights of nature, underscoring the reality that the well-being of humans and nature is inextricably linked.

iuCertainly Earth Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Earth Rights. To read the article in its entirety, please go to: http://globalsistersreport.org/blog/capital-e-earth/environment/study-released-cop21-illustrates-link-between-human-rights-natures

About opreach

I am Sister Pat Farrell, OP, a Dominican Sister of San Rafael. We are known as the Order of Preachers, and the Dominican charism of Preaching is very real in my life. The words of St. Paul resonate within me: “Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel!” (1 Corinthians 9:16) The quote on the header of OPreach is from the Dominican Saint Catherine of Siena. "Preach as if you had a million voices. It is silence that kills the world." I live at St. Luke Convent - a House of Hospitality - in River Forest, Illinois with another sister. I enjoy walking, hiking, and photography. The Chicago area has some great places for all of that!
