So much is heard every year in Lent about spirituality. It has only been less than a year since the release of “Laudato Si’,” Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical on the environment, so it seems noteworthy how much attention his message about creation focuses on spirituality. In a world beset with serious environmental issues, it makes sense to take St. Francis of Assisi’s teaching on the environment to heart and into reflection.
In the spirit of Lent and of St. Francis and “Laudato Si’,” we can listen for the voice of God. What does God want us to do to protect what he created?
