In the creation story, we hear of God creating human be- ings out of the earth, recalling our intimate relationship with the earth and our Creator. We also are invited to reflect on the ruptures in our relationship with God, reflected in Adam and Eve’s choice to steal fruit from the tree of life in their desire to be like God. Pope Francis writes in Laudato Si’, “The harmony between the Creator, humanity, and creation as a whole was disrupted by our presuming to take the place of God and refusing to acknowledge our creaturely limitations.” When we act towards creation out of greed and lack of respect for its order and beauty, we damage our relationship with God. Maryknoll
