I've been trying to find a way to post this map. It's from How the Irish Saved Civilization. The map shows the path the Irish monks took over the centuries planting monasteries as they went. Through Northern England, down what became eastern France, central Germany, Switzerland and down to the heel of the Italian boot. Bobbio is just bit north of Assisi. And we know who came from there. They took with them the Celtic view of the world. That Creation is sacred because God/dess or the Gods created it. That we humans share that sacred Creation with the bacteria, the fish, the trees and the chimpanzees.
It's long past time to jettison the dominant definition of Christianity for the Celtic/Saint Francis view of the world. One that leaves room for the rest of creation. That this Pale Blue Dot as Sagan called it is special because it's part of Creation.
