Lenten Carbon Fast

Pope Francis’ 2016 Lenten message emphasizes the practice of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy during this Jubilee Year of Mercy. Though he does not reference care for creation we might well include compassionate care for our suffering Mother Earth. The Global Catholic Climate Movement invites us to join with people around the world in a Lenten Carbon Fast.  Each country has a particular day to fast and pray for care of our Sister Mother Earth. The days for the USA are February 10th and March 25th (all countries) and February 25th.
