|The Earth is our Common Home APOSTOLIC EXHORTATION, Evangelii Gaudium, 183. November 24th 2013
An authentic faith – which is never comfortable or completely personal – always involves a deep desire to change the world, to transmit values, to leave this earth somehow better than we found it. We love this magnificent planet on which God has put us, and we love the human family which dwells here, with all its tragedies and struggles, its hopes and aspirations, its strengths and weaknesses. The earth is our common home and all of us are brothers and sisters’

If you do one thing well each day, then you work to change the world. If you stop one bit of plastic getting into the environment you move to save the world. Please tell supermarkets not to wrap foods in plastic.

“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.” — Stanislaw Jerzy Lec We are all responsible for our actions, and no matter how small they can affect the world.
We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest. Oscar Romero
We must listen and try to support those who are working for a future for their children, a future of beauty and peace and the integrity of creation.
We may not be listened to or liked but we will keep trying for a ‘future not our own’
