What people today need is an “ecological conversion”: ‘Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience' – Pope Francis.
Regarding the environment, Pope Francis identifies two groups of Catholics: the critical and the indifferent. A third group might consist of those who are willing, even enthusiastic, but who feel discouraged about the possibility of making any real difference. By unpacking Church tradition and teaching, and bridging the gap between theory and practice, this booklet will challenge the first, stir up the second, and encourage the third.|Pope Francis calls all Christians to an ‘ecological conversion’ – including you and me. This much needed explanation of Catholic belief and the environment, narrows the gap between theory and practice.
