Running from lions with GCCM Africa’s Benedict Ayodi

September 15, 2020

Br. Benedict Ayodi blesses the animals during a Season of Creation event last month.

Br. Benedict Ayodi and his fellow Franciscans were literally running for their lives as lions chased after them.

Yet once they had found safety, his fellow Franciscans pleaded with the authorities to not kill the lions. Their love for all of creation was that strong.

Br. Ayodi recounts that story and others in the latest podcast episode from Global Catholic Climate Movement.

Ayodi, GCCM Program Manager for Africa, also talks about how we should care for creation and follow St. Francis of Assisi’s example at all times.
