Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor

Brigidine Sisters welcome the Australian Social Justice Statement 2021 – 2022 titled “Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor” . It affirms that “we human beings need a change of heart, mind, and behaviour”.

It draws from Scripture, from the theological tradition, from Catholic Social Teaching, and from the wisdom of the world, including the insights of the First Nations.

The statement invites the whole Catholic community to join in taking up Pope Francis’ invitation to a seven-year journey towards total ecological sustainability, guided by seven Laudato Si’ Goals.
