Something to think and pray about this week

Stewardship of the Earth

Laudato Si’ reminds us that since everything has a value of its own in God’s eyes, we are called to be stewards, custodians, trustees or guardians of nature but never its dominators. We are to reflect the divine care that cherishes all creation (LS, 67–69), and to till and keep – that is, cultivate and protect – the gift loaned to us by God (Gen 2:15). Ecology is thus firmly located in the realm of the sacred, and God’s preferential care for the poor and marginalised of this world is now seen to embrace the oppressed species which we carelessly destroy.
