Laudato Si’ of the Holy Father Francis on Care for Our Common Home. “God, who calls us to generous commitment and to give him our all, offers us the light and the strength needed to continue on our way. In the heart of this world, the Lord of life, who loves us so much, is always present. He does not abandon us, he does not leave us alone, for he has united himself definitively to our earth, and his love constantly impels us to find new ways forward. Praise be to him!” So concludes Pope Francis’s Encyclical Letter to every person living on this plant calling for a transformation of the way we live and care about the planet and those who live on it, particularly the world’s most vulnerable. The Holy Father challenges all of us with his words. How will we respond – individually, as a parish, as a community of believers?
The newly formed Holy Trinity Green Team wants to assist parishioners in taking action to care for God’s creation. Since Pope Francis exhorted the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics and all people of good will to take urgent action against the injustice of climate change in this 2015 encyclical Laudato Si’, global warming has only increased. The question for you and me is what are we doing and what can we further do to respond to this call. We can become more knowledgeable, speak out and take concrete actions in our personal lives.
