We are destroying our country – Liturgy, July 24, 2022

By St Mary's in Exile

Bob Randal, Aboriginal elder of the Yankunytjatjara people from Central Australia speaks about how the land owns us.  We are one with the land and all of it is our family. If this had been our starting point, would we have allowed our environment to descend into its present deteriorated state?
