Season of Creation Calendar

This season in the Liturgical Calendar of the Archdiocese aims to promote and evangelize people to do what is best to care for our common home as the Holy Father said. As we remember the words of dear St. Francis of Assisi:

“Our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us.”

Therefore, this season calls us to love and care for the creation entrusted upon us, not just as stewards who guards it’s sheep but also as a mother who cares and a father who protects. Let not abuse take over the earth as it was said that

“to commit a crime against the natural world is a sin against ourselves and a sin against God” (Laudato Si’ #8).

It’s the little things that can make big things happen. Simple acts of care and love for nature will lead us to a better future. Let us continue and start encouraging our neighbours to care for our common home.
