This comes from the website of the US Catholic bishops:
WASHINGTON— A video on “Care for God’s Creation” is the first of a seven-part series on Catholic Social Teaching, designed to be an introduction to this body of thought with notable Catholics reflecting on each of the teachings. The video release comes in conjunction with Pope Francis’ declaration of September 1 as a day of prayer for creation. The video series is co-sponsored by Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and the Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
“We received the earth as a garden,” says Cardinal Peter Turkson, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace in the “Care for God’s Creation” video. “It would be very unfair if we pass on the earth as a wilderness.”
The videos will be released every three weeks in conjunction with notable events on the Church calendar, leading up to the kickoff of CRS’ Lenten program CRS Rice Bowl on Ash Wednesday 2016. The series will comprise seven short videos, each highlighting one of the seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching as recognized by USCCB:
• Care for God’s Creation
• Call to Family, Community, Participation
• Life and Dignity of the Human Person
• Dignity of Work and Rights of Workers
• Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
• Rights and Responsibilities
