Priority 3 :
Living a life committed to Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation
"The ecology crisis is a moral issue ... respect for life and for the dignity of the human person extends also to the rest of creation.”
Message of Pope John Paul II for the Day of Peace, 1990
We look with anguish on the violence and lack of peace in our world, the abuse of the earth and her resources, all signs of the breakdown of right relationship with God, with others, with creation and with ourselves. The need to heal this brokenness impels us to work for the restoration of the harmony and mutual care that we know to be God’s own desire for the world.
