Earth Day

God’s own gift to us is the Earth, the wonderful abode that the Creator intended for humanity. Caring for the Earth begins with deep respect for the planet and ensuring that we keep its environs clean so that we may responsibly hand over this very Earth to our generations to come. While we appreciate and thank God for the wonder of creation and the habitat for humanity, let us remind ourselves that we need to use this home responsibly so that our children and children’s children will still have a home that is safe and good.
Let us remember the words of St. Francis of Assisi: In giving we receive. In other words, what we sow we will reap. What we give to the planet Earth will be returned back to us naturally. So let us take care and use this planet and its resources responsibly.
