Laudato Si’ - Lines of Approach and Action 5

200-201. If a mistaken understanding of our own principles has at times led us to justify mistreating nature, to exercise tyranny over creation, to engage in war, injustice and acts of violence, we believers should acknowledge that by so doing we were not faithful to the treasures of wisdom which we have been called to protect and preserve.... 


Treasures of wisdom...What does creation teach us about social sin and right relationships? Read this article by Dr. Vincent Miller, “A Cathedral not made by hands: Laudato Si’ in an old-growth forest.


“We acknowledge our own complicity in the social sin of our global community, and we commit ourselves to further systemic change.” (Call of the 25th General Chapter) Discuss with one other person what you have read and relate it to the Call.
