The Care of Creation.  Demonstrating has its place, but if we campaign we must start with ourselves and not just expect others to do everything. What are we prepared to do to lessen climate change? What changes in our own life-style and expectations? No need to wait for government decrees. There is great satisfaction in living in partnership with the environment and respecting its needs. Pope Francis says: “Each community can take from the bounty of the earth whatever it needs for subsistence, but it also has a duty to protect the earth, and to ensure its fruitfulness for future generations.” (Laudato Si).
