Cornelia spoke of her “own dear country” and we can also speak of “our own dear planet.” Our home planet is in the throes of an environmental crisis that is a major “want of the age.” It calls us every day to love and serve by making creative and generous choices for sustainable living, some of them very simple, others more demanding. The aim, therefore, of “Actions for Our Own Dear Planet” is to renew and strengthen our commitment to take concrete action to care for what Pope Francis calls “Our Common Home.”

Every week a call to action will be posted to SHCJ in the American Province Newsnotes, and sent also to U.S. ASSOCIATES. Please consider these weekly suggestions your personal invitations to love and serve our home planet in solidarity with many others, and feel free to share them with friends.
“If applicable” applies throughout. Many will already be doing the suggested action and can rejoice that others will be joining them. When actions are recommended that you cannot do, read Laudato Si’ or be creative! Please, no stress, no guilt!
