The second issue of Path to Paris examines the impact of extreme weather, especially on the people of the Philippines. And it offers ideas for making a personal commitment to lifestyle changes, for taking action, and for meditation.
Path to Paris
November and December are historic months for taking action on climate change.
Nearly 200 nations will join the UN Climate Summit in Paris, starting November 30. We need them to take bold action and solve the current climate crisis.
To help you join the millions of people worldwide praying and acting for the care for the earth, the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns will offer a weekly series, Path to Paris.
Each week, a two-page prayer-study-action guide will examine the devastating impacts of climate change and what we can do, leading up to the UN Climate Summit in Paris.
We offer Path to Paris in response to Pope Francis’ call: “Our goal is not to amass information or to satisfy curiosity, but rather to become painfully aware, to dare to turn what is happening to the world into our own personal suffering and thus to discover what each of us can do about it.” (Laudato Si' 19)
Share each issue of Path to Paris with your parish and friends; and use it for personal reflection.
