NCROlINE offers a new resource guide with concrete steps for ecumenical planet care, conversation:
A new pastoral guidebook offers up some practical steps for Catholics to work with other Christians and communities of faith to better protect the environment and bring Laudato Si' to life.
The interreligious-focused "care for our common home" guidebook, released Monday, provides a roadmap for pastors, parishes and dioceses to ingrain Pope Francis' encyclical, "Laudato Si', on Care for Our Common Home," into their liturgies and the life of their church.
Its 56 pages provide an extensive compendium of prayers, liturgy suggestions, methods and topics for ecumenical or interreligious dialogue, and theological underpinnings of why caring for God's creation is a primary responsibility for all Catholics.
The guide is a collaborative effort co-published by the Catholic Association of Diocesan Ecumenical and Interreligious Officers (CADEIO), with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Catholic Climate Covenant. While offered as a resource for all Catholics, it is especially aimed at pastors, parish groups and those involved in interreligious work.
