Discovering Ecological Conversion

Discovering Ecological Conversion

 Pope Francis’ Encyclical “Laudato Si” has a section in Chapter 6 titled “Ecological Conversion.” This conversion changes how we look at, interact with, and behave to ‘Care for our Common Home,’ and how our changes have an effect on the environment as a whole. 

It involves change of heart, and our Faith and Christian Spirituality give us motivation to change – both personal and communal. Personal change requires us to make a commitment. Communal, or social, change requires us to get informed and to get involved. 

We can make changes in the way we travel, the clothes we wear, the electricity we use, the food we eat. Turn off lights and computers when not in use. Install LED lights. Get energy efficient appliances. Walk. Bike. Use public transportation. Recycle. Use reusable shopping bags. Reduce single-use plastics. Bring your own cup to Starbucks. Install wind and solar power. 

Let Ecological Conversion motivate you. 

Get involved, speak up, and take action.
