Happy Easter! And Happy Earth Day!
Easter and Earth Day go hand in hand when we consider this Sunday’s Gospel about Jesus as the Good Shepherd. Just as a shepherd is entrusted with the care of his sheep, God entrusts us to care for the earth as good stewards. A month ago, Pope Francis reminded us via Twitter: “To defend the earth and to safeguard water is to protect life” (@Pontifex 3/22/18).
Children of all ages can be encouraged to take to heart their responsibility to care for our earth and its resources. From conserving water and paper in our schools and homes to picking up trash and recycling, young people can be challenged to become more mindful of caring for the earth, our common home.
