The Earth and Environment
Because of the Churchís ongoing concern for animals, wildlife, and the creatures that inhabit this planet with us. Throughout our history, we have spoken of our responsibility to care for animals, our desire to co-exist well, and our concern for their welfare. St. Francis of Assisi is the most noted spokesperson. Yesterday (Oct.4), we celebrated his feast day.
Our care and concern for the environment Put simply, if we donít take care of our air and water and other natural resources, we will not live well and eventually will perish.
Our Relationship with all creation

Each of us is called to move beyond a focus on ourselves to a focus on others; to have a concern for the common good.
