1 SEP to 4 OCT
Season of Creation 2023
In our own ways, we are called to join the river of justice and peace.
- Educate ourselves and our families about Laudato Si’ – Care for our common home
- Make lifestyle changes to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
- On behalf of all Creation, to speak up for climate injustice especially to the poor, and the loss of biodiversity.
“Everyone’s talents and involvement are needed”
Take concrete actions in the care of our common home. Join the Laudato Si´Action Platform in the journey towards total sustainability in the spirit of integral ecology.
Pope Francis wrote an “encyclical letter” called LAUDATO SI, MI’ SIGNORE – “Praise be to you, my Lord”. It encourages us to see how “everything is connected.” The way we treat the Earth, our common home, is a reflection of how we treat each other. Caring for each other means caring for the home we share.
The Letter, tells the story of a journey to Rome of frontline leaders to discuss the encyclical letter Laudato Si’ with Pope Francis. The exclusive dialogue with the Pope, included in the film, offers a revealing insight into the personal history of Pope Francis and stories never seen since he became the Bishop of Rome.
The destruction that Man is rendering to the environment and each other…
“Everything is connected. Concern for the environment thus needs to be joined to a sincere love for our fellow human beings and an unwavering commitment to resolving the problems of society.”
“The Earth, our Home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth.”

WHAT YOU CAN DO…
As individuals, you can adopt sustainable lifestyles to consume less energy and resources. The list below are some practical lifestyle changes that you may want to consider. They are definitely not exhaustive. What are some of the better ways you can think of to help protect our Common home for our future generations? When we slow down the pace of resource depletion to let Earth heal, we are actually saving ourselves.
The Adoption of Sustainable Lifestyles is grounded in the idea of sufficiency, and promoting sobriety in the use of resources and energy. Adopt sustainable lifestyles like greater use of public transport, walk or cycle more…
Reduce the use of airconditioners especially when the weather is cold. Use natural ventilation or fan instead. Turn off water heaters when weather is hot.
Buy less and reduce waste or recycle by living simply. Direct excess resources to those who needs it more. Give alms.
Avoid Single-Use Items
When ordering takeaway food for consumption at home, opt out of single-use disposables e.g. spoon / fork / chopsticks. Minimise usage of styroform and plastic containers.
Use Water Mindfully
Reduce the number of baths if necessary. Use washing machine with full load. Avoid water wastage by fixing leaks. Refrain from dumping paints / chemicals / rubbish into the public drains meant for rain water collection.
Prophet Amos cries out: “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5: 24) and so we are called to join the river of justice and peace, to take up climate and ecological justice, and to speak out with and for communities most impacted by climate injustice and the loss of biodiversity.
