Parish Climate Action Group

Pope Francis in Laudato Si’ quotes Benedict XVI in calling for an “ecological conversion”: “The external deserts in the world are growing, because the internal deserts have become so vast.”


“For this reason,” Pope Francis adds, “the ecological crisis is also a summons to profound interior conversion. It must be said that some committed and prayerful Christians, with the excuse of realism and pragmatism, tend to ridicule expressions of concern for the environment. Others are passive; they choose not to change their habits... So what they all need is an ‘ecological conversion’, whereby the effects of their encounter with Jesus Christ become evident in their relationship with the world around them. Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience.”


Refer to the article by Roland Ashby:


‘Ecological conversion’ needed to avoid climate disaster — Living Water (thelivingwater.com.au)


Tip for this week: PRAY "as if there was no tomorrow" for a conversion to water the internal desert of your heart and the heart of Australia so we learn how to love God in creation with our whole heart, our whole soul and our whole strength, and to love our neighbour, including those in future generations, as ourselves.
