Caring For Our Common HomeFramework Introduction

An Ignatian Vision

As persons for and with others we also strive to be for and with all of creation. With an awareness of our interconnectedness and with compassion and commitment, we walk together to transform our knowledge, attitudes, habits and practices in order to reconcile ourselves with all beings, all elements of the world, and with the Creator. We do this individually and collectively, both locally and globally, with the Ignatian spirit of faith and joy for a sustainable and hope-filled future.

For Christians this is an ecological conversion “whereby the effects of their encounter with Jesus Christ become evident in their relationship with the world around them. Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue.” (LS 217)
