Europe’s Bishops call for ‘conversion’ in the Season of Creation

“May the Lord hear this cry and grant mankind a new heart, capable of showing compassion to the whole of creation…”   These were the words of the Catholic Bishops of Europe on 20 August as they promoted the Season of Creation. The “cry” they refer to is the “cry of the Earth” which was highlighted in Pope Francis’s 2015 encyclical Laudato Si’. The Season of Creation runs from 1st September, the Day of Prayer for Creation, to 4th October, the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of Ecology. You can find the full description of the Bishops’ message outlined in the Tablet (cf the Link below):
