Earth Monastery – Christine Valters Paintner 

April 16, 2017

“When we allow ourselves to be astonished by nature and stand in awe of the mystery of both life and death [we see] the world as sacramental. Sacramental theology has always taught that simple earthy things—bread, wine, water, oil, the embodied sexual relationship of marriage—can be bearers of divine grace. This is because the earth is the primordial sacrament.”
— Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Earth as the Original Monastery~ A Self-Study Online Retreat
