Madre Terra Celebration (Mother Earth Celebration)

The second day of the seminar on integral ecology started with a 2 hours celebration of "Mother Earth". This was lead by representatives of the indigenous people. Women play a greater role in this celebration. In fact the main celebrant is a woman.
All the participants gathered around a tree with many symbols around it. Among the symbols was the Maya calendar. With the recognition of the

value of the elements around the tree was followed by songs andincantation. Lastly, the celebration was followed by drinking different beverages made from forest products.


The aim of this celebration was to connect participants with nature. "Madre terra" is made up of the earth, with the rivers, the flowers, the trees, the birds, the animals, people… etc. Human beings are part of nature and destroying nature is destroying life itself.

This celebration was an eye opener for most participants. Many of them believe that they now have a better understanding of the message of Pope Francis in Laudato Si.

All in all, we hope that REBAC will also investigate in the African spirituality for symbols that connect with nature so as to better popularize the encyclical Laudato Si.
