Go on a buying fast this week and commit to not buying anything. You can do it! Start by looking at ways you can repair what you have instead of buying something new.
The stuff we buy and consume has a taxing effect on the planet. The world produces more than two billion tons of waste, and 99% of the stuff we harvest, mine, and transport is trash within six months. Six months!
“Return to me with all your heart”
Lent is a time of preparation for Easter and the celebration of the Paschal Mystery. During this time of fasting and renewal, we will embark upon a journey of ecological conversion through reflection, repentance, and renewal. Together.
By committing to concrete changes through fasting and lifestyle changes, we will live more in solidarity with our Earth and each other and inspire our sisters and brothers to join this conversion process.
