Extracts from Pope Francis’ message through the season of creation……
the Season of Creation
(Sept 1 – Oct
Secondly, let us add to the flow of this mighty river by
transforming our lifestyles. Starting from grateful wonder at the Creator and
his creation, let us repent of our ecological sins. These sins harm the world
of nature and our fellow men and women. With the help of God’s grace, let us
adopt lifestyles marked by less waste and unnecessary consumption, especially
where the processes of production are toxic and unsustainable. Let us be as
mindful as we can about our habits and economic decisions so that all can
thrive – our fellow men and women wherever they may be, and future generations
as well. Let us cooperate in God’s ongoing creation through positive choices:
using resources with moderation and a joyful sobriety, disposing and recycling
waste, and making greater use of available products and services that are
environmentally and socially responsible.
