Caring for Creation Calendar in the Year of Faith
“The environment is God’s gift to everyone, and in our use of it we have a responsibility towards the poor, towards future generations and towards humanity as a whole.” (Pope Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate, 48)
Inspired by Pope Benedict XVI’s teaching on Creation and the environment, the archdiocesan Care for Creation Committee offers you a new “Caring for Creation Calendar” for Lent 2013 in the Year of Faith. The calendar offers practical ways you can grow in your understanding of what it means to be a wise steward of God’s Creation and to deepen your commitment to practices and attitudes which promote care for Creation.
Consider giving copies of this Caring for Creation Calendar to others. The calendar is not meant just for those committed to the Church or to the environment. It is for all people who might want to learn more and who want practical tips to help them grow in stewardship of Creation. Most people are likely to be surprised and intrigued by the Church’s teaching on Creation and the environment. It is likely to show them the beauty and wonder of the Church’s concern for all things which are genuinely human (see Gaudium et Spes, 1).
In this year of Faith, may this Care for Creation calendar help you and those you know on your pilgrimage of faith toward truth.
Feel free to make copies and/or to send the link to the pdf to others.
Have a Blessed and Holy Lent in this Year of Faith.
