the Great Work Movement Philippines mourn the passing of one of the great minds of the 20th century. Passionist priest and acclaimed cultural historian Thomas Berry died in Well-Spring Retirement Community, Greensboro N.C, at 6:25 a.m., last June 1 2009. He was 94. Fr. Thomas Berry, described in Newsweek magazine in 1989 as “the most provocative figure among the new breed of eco-theologians,” was among the first to say the earth crisis is fundamentally a spiritual crisis. Berry considered himself a cosmologist and “geologian,” an Earth scholar. He was a visionary who inspired many people and organizations throughout the world with his teachings about the new cosmology.
