Laudato Si

Lent is a good time to increase our meatless days; the production of meat demands greater use of land than vegetable and grains. Great swathes of the Amazon Forest are daily being destroyed to make room for cattle grazing to fulfill the demands for meat from the western world destroying the lives of indigenous people and the trees which absorb so much of the world’s carbon emissions.

THE GLOBAL CATHOLIC MOVEMENT INVITES YOU TO “GLOBAL HEALING”

In 2015, Pope Francis published his ground-breaking letter on the environment Laudato Si’. Since then, millions of people worldwide have joined the global movement to address the environmental crisis our world is facing. This Lent, we are inviting YOU to join us for a series of reflective evenings with inspiring speakers, prayer and discussion, using the film-based resource “Global Healing”. These engaging documentaries will inform and challenge people to respond to Pope Francis’ call to Care for Our Common Home. Suitable for all who are concerned about what is happening to our world and who want to take action.

“Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or secondary aspect of our Christian experience…Truly, much can be done!”

(Laudato Si’, 217, 180)
