- In the liturgy, the psalm and responsory would celebrate with creation—with the forests, the rivers, and the fields, which praise the Creator, each in their own way.
- Bible readings would focus especially on the story of Earth, which complements the story of God and the story of humanity in the Scriptures.
In her 2014 book, "Worship and the New Cosmology," Sr. Catherine Vincie offers some suggestions:
- Draw parishioners' attention to the ecological crisis as well as the way human beings are treating God's Earth!
- With Planet Earth in peril and all creation suffering, SOC worship would direct the parishioners' attention to God’s creation and their relationship with creation, seeking ways to heal rather than exploit and destroy creation!
The outcome? A Roman Catholic SOC would punctuate the importance of caring for this planet home.
Really? Sounds like those who worship at the altar of environmentalism want to update the Church's liturgical calendar and the Roman Missal.
Echoes of "Kumbaya...."
