Neumann University Laudato Si On Care for Our Common Home Questions

I don’t understand this Writing question and need help to study.

Chapter 2 questions on the book Laudato Si

1, What do you understand by the statement “Where other creatures are concerned, we can speak of the priority of being over that of being useful “? (page 69)

2. Explain/comment on the statement “In the Judeo-Christian tradition, the word ‘creation’ has a broader meaning than ‘nature’. (page 76)

3. Do you believe that “No creature is excluded from the manifestation of God… Nature is a continuing revelation of the divine? (page 85) If so, how can you demonstrate your belief?

4. St. Francis saw himself as a “universal brother” called to live in harmony with the people and the world around him. How can we better reflect that harmony in our own lives as believers, citizens, workers, and consumers?
