 SOME FOOD FOR THOUGH DURING LENT: Words from Cardinal Bo, President of the Federation of Asian Bishop’s Conference: Lent is a time to build reconciliation between God and people, among peoples of the world and between people and the environment. He said that human greed and selfishness meant that water, land and animals of the world had been severely damaged. He continued: “In order to build reconciliation with God and people created by him, people and the natural environment, towards peaceful fellowship, making the world green and preserving good weather systems, it is important to change our attitudes and behaviour.” One way we can do this is by reading Pope Francis’ environmental encyclical “Laudato Si”. Why not download a copy by using this link and start your reading for Lent? Go to CAFOD website and you will find the encyclical under the tab Pray.
