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.

“The joy and hope, the grief and anguish of the people of our time, especially of those who are poor and afflicted in any way, are the joy and hope, the grief and anguish of the followers of Christ as well.” (Church in the Modern World 1)
