Go Green Lenten Challenge
So much about our world goes unseen, not the least of which is environmental degradation. However, as Catholics we are called to be aware. Aware of the poor, the widow, and the orphan, yes, but we must also have an awareness for something as basic as our relationship with nature. The health of the earth not only affects us, it also affects the daily lived experiences of the impoverished world-wide. The GO GREEN Lenten Challenge invites us to begin the important task of becoming aware of HOW we are in relationship to the earth, and HOW we can then move in loving action for/with our brothers and sisters across the world.

Today’s Tip: Turn off the lights!
Banish your daily interior gloom with a natural light source that lets you leave the lights off until the sun goes down. Sky lights, reflective materials, and pale colored walls help make the most of natural light.
