Stewardship of God's Creation

Stewardship of God's Creation


'Our earth is talking to us and we must listen to it and decipher its message if we want to survive.'               Pope Benedict XVI.


The earth and all life on it are God's creation.  We are called to take care of it because it is a holy gift from God and the only place we can live.  When we make wrong or thoughtless use of the world's resources, many people suffer.  When we make good choices about how we treat other living things (people, animals, plants) we help all living things to live as God intends.  Making wise choices about the care of God's creation is called good stewardship.
