Is Catholicism really green at heart?


Just two years ago it was considered weird and somewhat fringy to spend time considering the link between Catholicism and the environment. Now it is very common to see workshops, lectures and discussion on eco-living and being "stewards of creation". It seems the Church is responding to the grassroots cry for a Catholic voice to be added to the universal concern for the environmental crisis. But as we enter Lent, a traditional time for reflection, it is vitally important the Church takes time to stand back and truly consider its position - Mary Colwell
