Laudato Si!

Laudato Si!

Pope Francis’ much anticipated encyclical on the environment has arrived!  Lauadto Si – On the Care of Our Common Home – takes its title from the famous canticle of St Francis of Assisi. Like Pope Francis, the Society of the Sacred Heart has recognized the ecological crisis as a major priority. The first chapter of Laudato Si contemplates what is happening to our common home, the earth. Chapter 2 presents a Biblical vision of creation, and Chapter 6 stresses the potential of Christian spirituality to motivate and support appropriate responses.  These are excellent chapters to take into our prayer as we begin to consider the analysis and directions for action

Kiribati & Climate Change

Kiribati & Climate Change

Concern for justice, peace and the integrity of creation in solidarity with those who are the most vulnerable is one of the five international priorities of the Society of the Sacred Heart. During 2013-2016 the whole Society will be responding to the call to commitment to care for life and creation. We invite you to view and reflect on this video made by the Conference of Leaders of Religious Institutes in New South Wales. How might we express our solidarity with the vulnerable people of Kiribati?
