We all know Pope Francis has issued an urgent call to bring care for the Earth into both our spirituality and our daily actions. But how do we get started, especially with children and families?
Here, Sister Mary Elizabeth Clark responds to Pope Francis’ call by offering thirty lessons that will engage children, catechists, and families in the good work of keeping our planet livable and sustainable for coming generations.
Inspired by passages in Laudato Si’ (On Care for our Common Home), the lessons and practical activities are fun and thought-provoking. The reflections and prayers in each lesson help connect our practical actions to the gospel and deepen our spiritual sense of our common home.
From activities for conserving water to developing a greater awareness of all of God’s creation, this book will be a great resource for catechists and families.
