Catholic Social Teaching Series: Care for God’s Creation

I urgently appeal, then, for a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet. We need a conversation which includes everyone, since the environmental challenge we are undergoing, and its human roots, concern and affect us all.

—Pope Francis

“Care for the earth” is not just an Earth Day slogan; it is a requirement of our faith. We show our respect for the Creator by our stewardship of creation. We are called to protect people and the planet, living our faith in relationship with all of God’s creation.

This environmental challenge has fundamental moral and ethical dimensions that cannot be ignored. Pope Francis, in his recent encyclical Laudato Si, integrates the vital principle of Catholic Social Teaching, the care for God’s creation, with the lives of the poor, especially in developing countries.

Join Br. Steve Herro, O. Praem., social justice blogger, public speaker, and Norbertine community member, as he leads the discussion.

An Earth Month Challenge?

Earth Day is April 22, 2017; the more ambitious supporters extend it to Earth Week, April 22-29, 2017; the most ambitious supporters extend it to Earth Month, April 2017. How about considering the connection between transportation and Catholic Social Teaching this month?
