MGA Signs The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty

Mercy International Association - Global Action has signed The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty ahead of COP26 in Glasgow, UK. The Treaty is a global initiative to phase out fossil fuels and support a just transition.

Signed by more than 100 Nobel Prize laureates the treaty states in part: “The main cause of the climate emergency is fossil fuels. According to the latest IPCC report, coal, oil and gas are responsible for 86% of all carbon dioxide emissions in the past decade.

Phasing out fossil fuel production, and fast-tracking progress towards safer and more cost-effective alternatives, will require unprecedented international cooperation in three main areas – non-proliferation, global disarmament and a peaceful, just transition.”

MIA Prayer Intention: Solidarity with Papua New Guinea

Mercy Works, a Mercy ministry located in Australia, has put forth a call for solidarity in prayer with the people of Papua New Guinea. With the recent surge of the COVID Delta variant, many of the sisters, staff, and community have been affected.

Executive Director Sally Bradley RSM writes, “I invite you to join in this Prayer Novena, as we stand in solidarity with our Sisters, staff and friends and the whole people of Papua New Guinea. We ask the special intercession of Catherine McAuley and remember her words to us –‘We have ever confided largely in Divine Providence and shall continue to do.’

31st Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

“In today’s gospel reading we encounter a good scribe, while in next week’s we find some not so good scribes. This seems to fit the pattern of the Markan gospel. There are faithful disciples and not so faithful disciples...”

Here’s our dilemma: we need industry to make the things we need, like cars, buses, tractors and computers. But we also need a clean, livable planet. Leading Indian environmentalist Sunita Narain says we can have both, by using the right sources of energy and cutting back on waste.
