ABOUT THE BOOK

Following the Covid-19 pandemic, rarely a day goes by when we are not bombarded with distressing images, statistics or forecasts that suggest the future of our planet hangs in the balance and that to avert disaster we must take a?rmative action.


Time to Call Home is a collection of short meditations inspired by Laudato Si’, Pope Francis’ landmark encyclical letter on climate change, that encourages the reader to take courage in the face of adversity and to ponder the astonishing gift of the natural world. Unlike many examinations of the environmental crisis, that are understandably prescriptive in approach, the aim of this particular work is not to admonish but to embolden.


Readers are inspired to ponder the awesome gift of creation and to heed its attendant call to stewardship of our shared home. With recourse to poetry, scripture, art and music, Hugh O’Donnell takes the reader on an awesome ecological journey, from which we emerge committed to redoubling our e?orts to live at one with our natural surroundings.
