About the Author

Cornelius Ian (Scott) McCarthy is a priest of the Diocese of Monterey in California. Having spent much time with Native American communities and individuals while living and travelling throughout the Americas, he has come to recognize that the well-being of all people depends upon our proper relation to the creation, our Mother Earth. He holds two Masters Degrees as well as a Doctorate of Ministry, combining these intellectual enterprises with his own experience among many cultures. Recognizing our modern world's difficulties with its use of cutting-edge technology combined with outmoded ways of governance, he seeks to promote the general well-being of all people by teaching the time-honored relationship between worship and personal spirituality. He now focuses his sacred work on encouraging women, men, youth, and children to take glimpses into both past and present cultures so as to visualize a better future for everyone and everything.

Do you ever have days when you wonder if there's anything to be happy or grateful for? Do you ever look at the world and feel there's nothing to celebrate anymore? Well, look again! CELEBRATING THE EARTH by Scott McCarthy is a book of earth-centered theology full of ways to celebrate our earth and the good things in it. This book is based mostly on Christian spirituality but is welcoming to all world faiths and shares with us many creative and ecumenical ways we can celebrate this earth together as people of the earth. CELEBRATING THE EARTH has many beautiful prayers, blessings and rituals we can incorporate into everyday living along with the special times of our earth's rotation, but always honoring and celebrating our Creator and our beautiful earth. So turn off your TV, radio or that computer. Put away that newspaper or magazine and go outside. Look around and see what there is to see. Talk to people, make a new friend, smell a flower, admire a leaf. Smile. Feel the breeze on your face, the sun on your back, hear the frogs and listen to the birds. Look at the earth like you've never looked at it before. Find your niche on our planet and always celebrate it! You will feel much better. Beautifully written and put together by Scott McCarthy and wonderfully illustrated by Patricia Kay Shubeck.
