15/04/2019: General House

The fifth call of the XXII General Chapter asks “awaken in ourselves and those around us an ecological awareness that engages us in caring for ‘our common home’”, in response to emerging needs.

During his reflection for Lent, Pope Francis expresses that “when we fail to live as children of God, we often behave in a destructive way towards our neighbours and other creatures. Intemperance then takes the upper hand: we start to live a life that exceeds those limits imposed by our human condition and nature itself”.

What's our answer?

Kiribati is one of the most remote countries in the world, yet the beaches of South Tarawa are covered in litter due to an overcrowded population and poor waste management.
