THE GARDEN GOD WALKED IN:
A MEDITATION ON TREES


Dr. John Feehan, author and professor in the University College Dublin School of Biology and Environmental Science, gives a refreshing meditation on trees and their spiritual connection with all, especially with us who call ourselves humans. What Dr. Feehan presents is actually an enlarged ode to trees. With the wonderment of a child he takes us on a walk in the forests of yesterday and today, and raises the concern: What will they be tomorrow?

In his personable and informal style, Dr. Feehan reflects on the importance of trees as reflections of God’s unique creation. He speaks of the role trees have in manifesting the creative love of God. Using Thomas of Aquin as supporting authority, he infers that trees and the manifold diversity of creatures are yet inadequate in expressing the fullness of God’s being.

Though he sings of the value and the beauty of trees in this meditation, he maintains a solemn undertone with the question: What does the future hold if humankind continues to denude the earth of forests and trees? He reasons soundly: “No species on earth has undergone, through all of our universe’s time, its marvelous becoming just to be snuffed out of existence at our whim or our pursuit of shallow, trivial ends.”

Trees and “God Talk
(Summary of presentation given by Fr. Sean McDonagh, SSC)

Although Fr. Sean McDonagh has titled his presentation TREES AND GOD TALK, his concern is much broader than trees. His concern includes the whole of creation as he focuses on the current ecological crisis and the Church’s response, or non-response, to the crisis. He roots his presentation in the reality that every creature has intrinsic value by very fact of having been created by a loving God.

Fr. McDonagh decries the inadequate response of the Church to the crisis in its official teachings on justice and peace. Given that both Pope John Paul II and Benedict XVI have addressed ecological issues on a number of occasions, these efforts give little to the magnitude, urgency, and scope of the crisis. Their words give scant attention to the abundant information and data available from scientific research and factual reports.

Though Fr. McDonagh commends the Vatican officials for some pragmatic actions taken (solar panels on the Paul VI Auditorium and funds for tree-planting in Hungary for example), he decries the tendency of the Pope and other officials to see the issue primarily from a perspective of fear, fear that a “new pantheism” is developing. Such a fear comes through when the magisterium speaks of the how “man’s superior responsibility can be eliminated in favor of an egalitarian consideration of the ‘dignity’ of all living beings” (from the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church as cited by Sean McDonagh).

The core of Fr. McDonagh’s message is a call to the magisterium to articulate a clear theology of creation. Such a theology already has some expression in the Church’s experience—e.g. St. Thomas of Aquin, St. Francis of Assisi. Today, Bishops’ Conferences and theologians on each continent have raised their voices in this regard. It is time for the magisterium to take seriously, and studiously, the world wide concern for the environment in all its dimensions.

Practical actions Fr. McDonagh proposes include calling a Synod for Creation and giving support to such advocacy groups as the Forest Stewardship Council, the organization on Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation, and the Convention on Biodiversity. He concludes with the plea that “in responding to the present ecological crisis the Catholic Church urgently needs to develop a viable theology of creation.”
