Caring for Our Common Home
Every day at The Rosary Catholic Primary School we respond to the Pope's call to care for the world which God has entrusted to us.
Children's Responses to the Pope
In Laudato Si, Pope Francis clearly states that our common home is being destroyed and that we, as humans, have dominion over the whole earth. We have to act now! There is no alternative planet. We are ignoring the Earth’s cry; we cannot continue like this. Time is running out and the solution is right in front of us: trees can help to save our planet but every day they are being mercilessly cut down. Greta Thunberg said at the United Nations Climate Summit that trees are our climate solution. Play your part. We have developed a speed of destruction that we could never have imagined. Make your voice count and stop this. We have to make our dream a reality so protect and restore nature. We spend thousands and thousands of pounds on fossil fuels rather than on developing natural resources. How can we hope for a future when we don’t know if there is one? Climate change affects us all but it is the poorest who suffer most.
