Eduardo J. Berenguer - church

"When the Church is criticized, it complains that it is being persecuted. But when the Church itself persecutes, it claims its actions in defense of the faith. Socrates Villegas should be reminded of the vicious persecutions that the Catholic Church had committed in the past: the burning of heretics and witches, the persecutions of the Jews, the murder of the Cathars and the Huguenots, the persecution of the Jansenists, the mass slaughter of the "infidels" during the Crusades, etc. Villegas is a shameless hypocrite." ~Eduardo J. Berenguer, April 17, 2017. Comment: From Manila Times: Defend what is right, Villegas urges bishops (Archbishop Socrates Villegas)

Empowering Wonen

"One of the great gifts of literature is that it allows us to see the world through the eyes of another, and in doing so, sometimes we end up learning a thing or two about ourselves, or about the person we would like to be. For many women, Anne inspired them to believe in themselves and know what they were capable of and what they were worth. Anne showed us how to love ourselves and to encourage others to do the same." ~Katie Bull, Sullivan Entertainment (Anne of Green Gables)

"The role of women in many communities around the world is that of caretakers and of educators, so ensuring that women globally are given the proper tools to persevere that they can then pass along to their children and grandchildren is one of the greatest gifts that could be given to a community caught in a cycle of poverty." ~Katie Bull, Sullivan Entertainment (Anne of Green Gables)

Quotes from Wake Up World

"... because in nature there is God and God talks to us in our visions.” ~Carlos Perez Shuma, a Peruvian shaman

“In the absence of the sacred, nothing is sacred. Everything is for sale.” ~ Oren R. Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Turtle clan

"It is no longer rare to meet adults who have never swum except in a swimming pool, never slept except in a building, never run a mile or climbed a mountain, never been stung by a bee or a wasp… We are separated from the world by a layer of glass…. in our temperature-controlled enclosures, all can be reduced to abstractions.” ~George Monbiot, the Guardian columnist and author of ‘Feral: Rewilding the Land, the Sea, and Human Life’

"Nature symbolism is dominant in healing experiences and people of all age-groups feel emotionally more stable, more peaceful, more alive, more compassionate and re- enchanted after spending time in nature." ~Christa McKinnon, Waking Up to the Sacred in Nature and Reclaiming Our Earth Soul

"Our earth is sacred… living on the earth, each person must respect their place. We must respect it, protect it and it will give us life, it will give us health." ~Slava Cheltuev, a shaman from the Dyayat Kypchak clan of Russia’s Altai mountains
