WHAT CAN I DO FOR THE EARTH AND THE POOR?

WHAT CAN I DO FOR THE EARTH AND THE POOR?

 

In Laudato Si, the papal encyclical on Care for our Common Home, Pope Francis calls on us

“to apply legitimate means of pressure to ensure that each government carries out its proper and inalienable responsibility to preserve its country’s environment and natural resources without capitulating to spurious local and international interests.” #38

All faiths across Australia are currently petitioning the government to do better by the environment in their next policy review.

This is your invitation to sign the petition and play your role in Francis’ push for more respect of our Common Home.

The petition is supported by many faith groups, including Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC), Caritas, Catholic Earthcare, Faith Ecology Network (FEN) and many others.

THE PETITION WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SIGNATURE AT MASSES ON THE WEEKENDS OF 3/4  AND  10/11 JUNE 2017
