FAN's executive director, Patrick Carolan and former president, Sr. Margaret Magee, OSF recently co-authored the lead article in this quarter's publication of Franciscan Connections: The Cord titled, Green New Deal: A Franciscan Perspective. The article gives a basic understanding of the high points of the Green New Deal while offering reasoning behind why it is a very Franciscan piece of legislation.
From the article:
"This is the type of visionary thinking that reflects the passion and care for all God's creation that guided the life of St. Francis of Assisi."
We encourage you to read through it and share it with your networks and friends. The climate crisis is something all Franciscans should work toward resolving as it affects all of God's wonderous creation. Sign up to receive Franciscan Connections - The Cord directly to your home or email.
