Paris Update from December 7, 2015

As part of the Franciscan Family in Paris, Franciscan Action Network is proud to bring you blog postings from some of our delegates. These blogs will be written each day by a different delegate on the ground in Paris, attending #COP21 meetings, side events and the Franciscan Delegation Meetings.

The following reflection is by Pat McMahon, OSF.

Yesterday we spent time at the Civil Society’s events – an outdoor festival with a number of interactive opportunities and a feeling of high energy. Today we went to the official visitors’ center, which was inside and had a much more subdued atmosphere.


However, we each found opportunities to learn from others and to share our values. Several of us attended sessions which were presented by the indigenous peoples coalition. We heard them speak about working on community land rights and the role of women in climate justice. Others heard presentations from those who work in business, those who are trying to create volunteer networks and how young people are growing in their concerns for climate justice.


In the evening Rodrigo Peret and Moema Miranda presented on the work that they have been doing on the mining project which was an outcome of the Franciscan presence at Rio +20 and to support the work of the JPIC promoters in Rome.

  1. If you’re at all interested in knowing . . . the Catholic Dogmas . . . that we *must believe* to get to Heaven . . .

    We list it on our website > > >

    The Dogmas have in fact … been hidden from you.

    The Catholic God knows . . . what we think and believe . . .

    Catholic writing of Romans 1:21 >
    “They … became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened.”

    Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Job 21:27 >
    “Surely I know your thoughts, and your unjust judgments against Me.”

    The fact that “islam” is not a religion is on Section 113.1 of the site. Mohammed in the “koran” wrote exactly the opposite of the Old Testament Prophets.

    Proverbs 30:4 > “Who hath ascended up into Heaven … what is the name of His Son.”
    koran – maryam 19:35 > “It is not befitting … Allah that He should beget a son.”
