We hope you’re doing o.k. at this difficult time for people everywhere. Today is World Earth Day, and we want to invite you to join in celebrating our common home while you’re confined to your own home. Will you and the people you’re in contact with rise to the challenge of “Planting hope and harvesting joy”?

Why not take advantage of this confinement period? Let’s make it an opportunity to reconnect with our Sister Mother Earth. We can also invest in the future by taking on new (and necessary) lifestyle changes. How about stepping up and growing your own food?

So, take the plunge! We want to hear all about it! Share your experience of lifestyle changes with us as we mark World Earth Day. Send your photos or videos to media@ofmjpic.org  — you have until May 15th.  When Laudato Si’ week comes around, we’ll share your stories with everyone!

Praised be You, my Lord, through our Sister Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs.

St. Francis of Assisi

Let’s go step by step…
