Earth care

Faith Focus for the Week

How do I show respect and care for all God's creation?

God created the heavens and the earth. As Christian stewards, we help take good care of creation. As stewards, we step up to the responsibilities of caring for creation, preserving the world’s wonders for future generations to enjoy.

And enjoyment seems to be key: The more we enter into the natural world, the more we enjoy it. The more we enjoy nature, the more willing we are to help conserve it.

As summer approaches, choose at least one new way to be a thoughtful and faithful steward of the Earth. Here are a few suggestions:

• Spend time enjoying the outdoors each week.
• Pick up trash.
• Walk or ride your bike instead of driving a car.
• Conserve water: Turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth. Take shorter showers.
• Turn off lights when you leave a room.
• Keep shades drawn during the hottest days to reduce the need for air conditioning.
• Do not litter.
• Help plant a tree or flowers.
• Learn where the ingredients of your favorite foods are produced.
• Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
• Bring your own canvas shopping bag.
• Pray and ask St Isidore the Farmer to intercede for those grow food, especially family farmers
• Use recycled/unbleached paper products.
• Stroll through a park.
• Be kind to animals.
• Make a donation to an organization working to provide clean water to people around the world, for example, Catholic Relief Services’ “Turn On the Water”.
