Let ours be a time remembered for the awakening of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life.Pope Francis, Laudato Si’ (207)
For the six Thursdays of Lent 2021, hundreds of people from across the country joined together online for a Lent course exploring the theme of care for our common home as developed in the films Global Healing and Global Caring, with the help of a panel of expert speakers. The series was facilitated by the UK Laudato Si’ Animators from the Global Catholic Climate Movement. Each session is accompanied by a hand-out with helpful ideas and information for follow-up action, prayer and reflection, designed to help us unite around the common goal of hearing the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor – the very heart of the encyclical Laudato Si’ and the gospel imperative to all Christians and people of goodwill. We hope you will join us in the task that lies ahead in this deeply significant year as the UK government hosts the UN climate conference, COP26, in Glasgow 1-12 November 2021.
