What we need today is a “Candle Light Revolution for Peace” in every neighborhood, every city square, and every nation in the world. We must magnify the cry for peace, reach across oceans, and hold our leaders accountable, for the sake of the children and their children, for the peace of our world.
This week closes out the Season of Creation, which runs from the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation on September 1 to the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi (which is October 4).
Three months have now passed since the administration announced its intention to withdraw from the global climate accord known as the Paris Climate Agreement.
This reflection is the second in a series of five reflections that we are calling "Faces of Climate Change," in honor of the Season of Creation.
