Care for Creation: Laudato Si'
Parish Involvement > Care for Creation
Care for our Common Home
The LAUDATO SI' ACTION GROUP (LSAG) seeks to respond to the call of Pope Francis in his second encyclical, subtitled “On care for our common home”. In it, Pope Francis calls on us to embrace the notion of integral ecology. He challenges us to hear the cries of the earth and the cries of the poor as one. He critiques consumerism and irresponsible development, laments environmental degradation and global warming, and calls on us to respond concretely by taking “swift and unified global action…..Let us be renewed by God’s mercy…and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish.”
The Archdiocese of Brisbane has launched its own plan that will help Parishes journey towards greater love for our Creator, each other, and the home we share. And in doing this the Archdiocese of Brisbane has made a strong commitment to take action to embrace Pope Francis’ vision of integral ecology. With the help of the Archdiocese, the LSAG works to implement our own Parish plan for education and action.
