Holy Week 2018 – Prayer Powerpoint

At the end of Holy Week, we will once again remember the fulfilment of Jesus’ words:

“The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve
And to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28)

But in the days leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion, also, the gospels describe a number of significant events, encounters, symbolic actions and teaching.

For each day in Holy Week, a simple reflection, comprised of a single image and a short passage of Scripture, is offered for contemplation. The Biblical texts are all drawn from events the Gospel writers place in Holy Week.

“God saw that it was good”

The Bible opens with the story of creation, highlighting its beauty, diversity and interconnectedness. But today that same creation is under threat. In this series of powerpoints, which can be used individually or taken together as the basis for an extended presentation, Elizabeth offers a reflection on the variety of created life – what scientists call biodiversity – our interdependence with all created life, the threats the diversity of life faces, what is being done to preserve it, and what we can ourselves do.

Introduction and Part 1 : What is biodiversity?

Part 2 :  Planet Earth – A place of astonishing variety, richness and interconnection

Part 3 : We are utterly dependent on biodiversity

Part 4: Biodiversity in our Faith Tradition

Part 5a: Biodiversity under threat

Part 5b: Why does this matter? 

Part 6: What needs to be done, what is being done, causes for hope

Part 7: What can we do? 

Part 8: Prayer – Pope Francis’ Prayer in Union with Creation
