The Season of Creation

The Season of Creation is an important opportunity to reflect upon our relationship to each other and to the earth that sustains us. There is no doubt that throughout the world global warming and climate change are adding to the poverty of millions of people and we know that if we don’t change our ways we will be adding to the problems on a daily basis. The Season of Creation is the opportunity to think about and pray about how we can change our lifestyle so that we can avoid an unprecedented ecological crisis. A great cultural, spiritual and educational challenge stands before us if we are to avoid the worst consequences of a failure to be open to an ecological conversion. If we are to look after our ‘Common Home’ we need the prayers and support of each other, which will lead to the positive action that the Season of Creation is calling us to. As we set out on the long path to renewal let’s be together and celebrate the beauty of creation and the gifts of life.
