LENTEN REFLECTION 2020: REPENTING OF ECOLOGICAL SIN AND CULTIVATING ECOLOGICAL VIRTUES
Week 2:- March 1
ECOLOGICAL SIN - LUST
Lust is the inability to appreciate someone or something beyond its appearances and to wish to obtain it because of its appearance. This sin cuts us off from forming deeper relationships with creation, and, through it, with God.
ECOLOGICAL VIRTUE - SELF-CONTROL
Self-control invites us to let creation be what it is, rather than trying to shape it for our own wants. This virtue can help us form a deeper relationship with creation to learn from its wisdom and appreciate our intimate connection.
HEALING ACTION - PRAY OUTSIDE
Spend time praying outside to appreciate creation as a gift from God, sacred in its own right. Say a rosary or listen to how God is speaking to you through creation.
