Catholic Social Teaching and Care for God's Creation

Episode Summary

Care for God's Creation is the third of seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching. Part of honoring God is being good stewards of Earth's resources and handing on a clean, healthy environment to future generations.

Episode Notes

As human persons we have three main relationships: with God, with each other and with creation. Our care for Earth should reflect our gratitude to God for all life by respecting the planet and using its resources wisely.  Listen to Scott Hurd, vice president of leadership formation at CCUSA, and Kim Burgo, vice president of disaster operations at CCUSA, as they talk about the meaning and practice of caring for our common home.
