Season of Creation Spotlight: CIDSE’s Stories of Change

During the Season of Creation, we have an opportunity to reflect on what makes our Christian commitment to Creation special. Our partners at CIDSE, the international family of Catholic social justice organisations, have produced compelling stories about sustainable development that help us reflect on our place in God’s creation.

One in particular hits home. It features Maria, a young woman in Portugal who is lighting up the lives of everyone around her. Although she was born with cerebral palsy, Maria has finished university, acted in theater, and jumped out of an airplane, and is now tackling her latest challenge: sustainable living.

During the Season of Creation, when we’re called to prayerfully reflect on our role as protectors of the Earth. Christians around the world are standing together to address climate change and commit to sustainable stewardship of Creation.
