This week, we joined with the Church to celebrate Laudato Si’ Week. Coinciding with Pentecost, we are called to unite in community and reflect on the urgent message of Laudato Si’. Pope Francis’ encyclical highlights the pressing need for both personal and cultural transformation in the face of our ecological and climate crises. As we observe this week, we are reminded of our collective responsibility to nurture hope and take action for our "suffering planet" (Laudato Si' 2).

Laudato Si’ Week begins on Pentecost Sunday, May 19. The 2024 theme is “Seeds of Hope.” Hope in the light of the climate crisis and the health of our planet is often hard to come by. There seems no end to the battlefronts. Sometimes it is overwhelming. But when I think of the act of planting seeds, it seems to be achievable.
