Living Laudato Si’

As good Christians and citizens of the world, we want to take care of creation, the gift we have been given by God. We want to manage well the inheritance that will be left to our descendants and truly care for creation.

Following Pope Francis’ leadership and the 1.3 billion Catholics who care for creation, Laudato Si’ Movement has come up with 52 ways for you, your family, and your community to pray and take action for God’s creation this year.

Of course, you’re welcome to swap out your own ideas and mix and match. The Holy Spirit gives us creativity for the common good!

Week of Jan. 30

Week 42 of 52 ways to care for creation: Do not sin by wasting food

Avoid food waste with good habits and smart shopping. At the table, take only what you’re going to eat. Look for solidarity networks and apps that help share the leftovers of each day. Learn to use leftovers with creative dishes. Do not buy more than necessary and make better use of the pantry. As Pope Francis said, “Let us remember well, however, that whenever food is thrown out it is as if it were stolen from the table of the poor, from the hungry! I ask everyone to reflect on the problem of the loss and waste of food, to identify ways and approaches which, by seriously dealing with this problem, convey solidarity and sharing with the underprivileged.”
