“Once we start to think about the kind of world we are leaving to future generations, we look at things differently; we realize that the world is a gift which we have freely received and must share with others.”
– Pope Francis
Every year on April 22 we celebrate Earth Day. In their travels throughout the world our missionaries have seen the beauty of creation in many forms – people, animals, rainy seasons, bountiful harvests, drought, and more. Unfortunately, the poorest among us are often the vulnerable to environmental changes and damage. This Earth Day, as you celebrate the wonder of creation be mindful of our brothers and sisters around the world who need us to be good stewards of the earth.
