Today I am on MC. Have a chance to updte my blog. Strange thing is both my wife's and mine i-pod died today too.
Inspired by St. Basil's prayer, I have decided to look for some material about environmentalism in the catholic tradition. I found this:
In 1990, Pope John Paul II issued his World Day of Peace Message, Peace with God - Peace with all of Creation, in which the Holy Father announced, "There is a growing awareness that world peace is threatened not only by the arms race, regional conflicts, and continued injustice among peoples and nations, but also by a lack of due respect for nature.... Moreover, a new ecological awareness is beginning to emerge which, rather than being downplayed, ought to be encouraged to develop into concrete programs and initiatives."
