Homily marking the beginning of the Season of Creation 2022 – by Archbishop Eamon Martin, Archbishop of Armagh and Catholic Primate of All Ireland

“The Season of Creation:  September 01 (World Day of Prayer for Creation) to October 04 (Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi)”

From a faith point of view, God is calling us today, more than ever, to be caring stewards of creation, to protect and nourish our planet and its resources, and not to selfishly waste them or ruthlessly and excessively exploit and destroy them.  The challenge we face, to be humble before the wonder of God’s creation, to accept that we need a more balanced, and less wasteful lifestyle: we need ”to live more simply, so that others might simply live”.
