Journeying Toward Care for Our Common Home
As the Season of Creation draws to a close, commit to take the very important step of voting for people who will work together to care for our common home.
The U.S. bishops call Catholics to “apply a consistent moral framework to issues facing the nation and world” and “shape their choices in elections in the light of Catholic Social Teaching.”
We invite you to take the pledge to vote and help us gather a sizeable number of U.S. Catholics who will approach the U.S. election on Nov. 3rd with a pledge to enact love and vote with the fullness of Catholic Social Teaching. TAKE THE PLEDGE
The Feast of St. Francis, October 4, ends this year's Season of Creation. It is fitting that the Vatican document, Journeying Towards Care for Hour Common Home: Five Years after Laudato Si', just came out in English. Published first on May 31, 2020, the Solemnity of Pentecost, the document offers a guide to Catholics, and all Christians, regarding our relationship with God’s Creation. It has two chapters, "Education and Ecological Conversion" and "Integral Ecology and Integral Human Development." Each of the subsections include context, reference texts, good practices, and possible actions. It is not net available online and will take a while to come out in print.
