We believe the federal budget is not just an economic document; it is also a statement on the moral compass of our nation. As such, it should reflect our highest calling to take care of the most vulnerable and support a just, equitable society.
Inspired by Pope Francis' encyclical on ecology, Laudato Si', this contemporary version of the Beatitudes is offered as a prayer for global action on the current climate crisis. A collaboration of the Franciscan Action Network and the Global Catholic Climate Movement.
