Creation Sustainability Ministry launch

Writings of popes, bishops and religious women and men have and are encouraging all Catholics to respect God’s creation and to reduce our use of the Earth’s resources.

In Pope Benedict's 2010 World Day of Peace message, "If You Want to Cultivate Peace, Protect Creation," he writes: "Future generations cannot be saddled with the cost of our use of common environmental resources ... Our present crises — be they economic, food-related, environmental or social — are ultimately also moral crises, and all of them are interrelated. They require us to rethink the path which we are traveling together. Specifically, they call for a lifestyle marked by sobriety and solidarity, with new rules and forms of engagement, one which focuses confidently and courageously on strategies that actually work, while decisively rejecting those that have failed."

To celebrate the gift of God’s creation and the launch of the archdiocesan Creation Sustainability Ministry, attend the 12:30 p.m. Mass on Oct. 10 at Mary Immaculate Church, 10390 Remick Ave., Pacoima.
