As we continue to explore the story of the Universe we deepen our awareness of God's presence in all Creation. This inspires us to acknowledge, hold and respect the energy, sacredness, and interconnectedness of all life's ongoing stories.
We are aware that those whose lives and well being are most threatened by social and ecological injustices may be the least able to resist oppression, and so we are continually challenged and moved to develop creative ways to respond and collaborate more effectively to eliminate all types of oppression and restore all life-giving interdependent relationships.
`We are all responsible for the protection and care of the environment. This responsibility knows no boundaries…We cannot remain indifferent to what is happening around us, for the deterioration of any part of the planet affects us all.' (Pope Benedict XVI, World Day of Peace, 1st January 2010).
