Reflection: As mentioned in the article above by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, actions can be taken to achieve goal #7. Being informed is important; but taking action shows respect for creation and care for our brothers and sisters in the global family. In the pdf from Ignatian Spirituality, easily achievable actions are identified to assist us in becoming involved.

See Chapter Two of Journey Towards Care for Our Common Home - Five Years After Laudato Si.pdf: “Community Involvement and Participatory Action”
