fabio, you might wanna check there is an antiphon at sunday matins that runs like "to his mother, the earth, all mortal man/earthling returns..."
Good catch!

The Third Antiphon of the 8th Tone reads (emphasis mine):
To you have I cried, O Lord. Listen and incline your ear towards me when I shout. Purify me before you take me from this place.

Everyone will return again to his mother, the earth, and shall suffer dissolution, to receive punishment or reward, the desserts of his life.

"Mother earth" is a classic pagan deity, a standard phrase for all kinds of eco-paganism.
Because we know the 1930's were filled with eco-paganism and environmentalists. :angel:
