Newsletter items from the Justice & Peace Group Week Commencing 8-11-20

Live Simply Tip of the Week The second part of the Laudato Si’ pledge calls us to Live More Simply. In Laudato Si’ Pope Francis invites us to, “return to that simplicity which allows us to stop and appreciate the small things, to be grateful for the opportunities which life affords us, to be spiritually detached from what we possess, and not to succumb to sadness for what we lack.” (222). As a way to live Laudato’ Si, we invite you to look for ways to use less, to share more, and to focus on relationships instead of things. There’s 10 items in this series – one each week
Week 6 Drive Less —Talk to friends about sharing a car or vehicle for grocery trips, to and from Church and other opportunities. Bike, walk, or use public transportation whenever possible.
