with Sister Dianne Bergant, CSA
In this third of a series entitled "Diving into Francis", Sr. Dianne Bergant, CSA, reviews the three themes of Pope Francis in Laudato Si, namely 1) Anthropology 2) "Interconnectedness" and 3) Interdependence.
Here, Sr. Dianne explains the meaning of metaphor and how it applies to the flood as found in the Book of Genesis. She explains that the point is not if it really happened. The essence of the story is the covenant that God made through Noah.
She then speaks of the covenant with Abraham and the ritual of sealing the covenant. The partners make a serious promise to keep the covenant.
With Noah, God initiates the covenant. The partners of the covenant are God and the physical world, not just Noah. All are connected on a spiritual level. God’s responsibility is not to do this again….and so God sets a rainbow in the sky as a sign of that promise.
