Season of Creation Logo

Pope Francis is calling for an ecological conversion for all who live on this planet through his encyclical, Laudado Si’.  Hence, throughout the Season of Creation, we will be introducing the seven goals of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform into our daily reflections. This week we focus on:

 

GOAL#7:
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND PARTICIPATORY ACTION

Goal #7 encourages the development of cultures and policies that protect our common home and all who share it.

Each day provides you with an opportunity to See, Reflect, and Act.

To help you "See" the signs of our times,
we provide a relevant resource to read.

To supplement as you "Reflect" on the text,
we provide a relevant quotation from Laudato Si'.

To inspire you to "Act" in the world,
we share a relevant action that CSA has taken.

Finally, we will provide a daily Intercession to remind you that you are not doing this difficult work alone.

 

If you prefer to receive the details for the whole week in one email please send email to Tracy Abler at table@csasisters.org

Goal #5 is about re-thinking and re-designing curricular and institutional reform in the spirit of integral ecology in order to foster ecological awareness and transformative action. .
Goal #6 recovers a religious vision of God's creation and encourages greater contact with the natural world in a spirit of wonder, praise, joy, and gratitude.

Each day provides you with an opportunity to See, Reflect, and Act.

Action Opportunity: Vaccine Equity

August 09, 2021
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

A MESSAGE FROM THE USCCB – Justice, Peace and Human Development

The U.S. is a leading producer of vaccines, and we have a moral responsibility to help end the pandemic by sharing vaccines with our brothers and sisters around the world. In order to end the pandemic here, we must end it everywhere. Tell Congress to act now!
 
Recently, the U.S. Bishops commended President Biden on committing 500 million of the 1 billion vaccines shared by the G7 countries. The inequalities in vaccine distribution are staggering.  Each of us as Catholics can do our part by calling upon Congress to support President Biden’s initial step by leading the international community to fund vaccine supplies and distribution for low- and middle-income countries.
 
We have a responsibility to listen to our sisters and brothers in other countries who are crying out for an end to this pandemic, especially those most vulnerable to the virus. By helping others abroad, we also help ourselves here at home. Lift your voice today to protect the health and safety of our global family!
 
Be sure to share a brief personal story about why you chose to write to your officials today. A short, unique, addition about why this issue matters to you will make your message much more effective.
