"The mountains, deer, pines, gorges, mountain lions, birds and air spoke of sacredness and the thumbprint of the Creator writ large as the Book of Romans passage speaks: 'Since the creation of the world God has made known invisible qualities of wonder and love.' So what excuse do we have not to protect these areas?"

—Franciscan Sr. Joan Brown, in "Prioritize holy sites like Bears Ears," published on Global Sisters Report
