It was before their act of disobedience that God gave Eve and Adam dominion over all creation. Sadly, after their turning away from God, this dominion increasingly became domination, exploitation, and misuse of the land of their exile. This, perhaps, accounts for Jesus’ commissioning his disciples to preach the gospel not only to all peoples, but to every creature—that bear the burden of human sinfulness. Little wonder, then, that Saint Paul speaks of creation awaiting with eager expectation to be set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God. This is all very relevant to our present ecological crises and a stark warning that any effort at saving and preserving our environment that doesn’t take into account human sin, is bound to frustration and ultimate failure. And although some saints literally preached to creatures (and animals), it is as converted, transformed, and recreated sons and daughters of God that we, by our very being, preach to all creatures and relate to them and all creation according to the mind and intention of our common Creator. Given our present precarious ecological situation we have yet another reason to engage the New Evangelization being called for by the Holy Father and, more importantly, entrusted to us by our Risen Lord.
