Passion of the Earth, Wisdom of the Cross is our six session formation and action program developed especially for the Passionist Family: Caring for Creation, Embracing Gospel Justice, and Renewing the Passionist Charism. Each session's brochure is designed for group discussions in local communities and ministry sites: schools, parishes, retreat centers and offices.

Session One was released in 2021 and is entitled "What is Happening to our Common Home?and it focused on water issues.

Session Two is entitled "Honoring God's Revelation in the Natural World, Addressing Consumption and Consumerism," and was recently released from Rome on April 22, 2022 (Earth Day).

A facilitators' guide and copies of both Sessions #1 and #2 in English and Spanish can be found here.
