The Environmental Praxis of Basic Ecclesial Communities (BECs): Ecclesiological Perspective
Amado L. Picardal
PDF Version Download

Reflecting on the successful anti-logging campaign of the BECs of San Fernando, Bukidnon, the author makes use of the PCP II vision of a renewed Church-- the Church as Community of Disciples living in Communion, participating in the mission of Christ as prophetic, priestly and kingly/servant people as the Church of the Poor -- as an ecclesiological framework for understanding and justifying the environmental praxis of the BECs. This involves a broader and more relevant interpretation of the meaning and implication of this ecclesial vision which can spur the Church in general and the BECs in particular to be more vigorously involved in the struggle for the integrity of creation.
