Responding to the Cry of the Poor – Water February 9, 2022.
Remembering what Paul said that, “All things were created by him and for him” (Col.1:16), invited us to pause and look forward to what God’s Creation means to us, how we are keeping this Creation legacy, and trust for its continuance for future generations.
The theme for this event continued with Responding to the Cry of the Poor with an emphasis on the access of water necessary for all God’s creation. In Laudato Si, Pope Francis cautions us, “Access to safe drinkable water is a basic and universal human right in which we have a grave social debt towards the poor who lack access to drinking water, because they are denied the right to a life consistent with their inalienable dignity” LS 30.
