The ecumenical Season of Creation runs from September 1st to October 4th, the feast of St. Frances, the patron saint of ecology. It is an opportunity to rejoice in the wonders of creation and thank our creator God. It is a time to ask forgiveness for all the damage human beings have done to our wonderful planet and especially to the most vulnerable who have done least to cause the problem and its disastrous consequences in the first place! It is a time to renew the OIKOS of God and to ensure that there is a home for all.
Here in the UK there is great enthusiasm for change as we prepare for the UN Climate Summit (COP 26) which will be held in Glasgow in November.
