Happy Earth Day from Jubilee Farm!

Today we celebrate our common home: Earth. In his teaching Pope Francis writes: “Because all creatures are connected, each must be cherished with love and respect, for all of us as living creatures are dependent on one another.” (Laudato Si’ 42) Today reflect upon what you love and cherish about Earth. You are invited to watch this ten minute video created by the Catholic Climate Movement. How do you promote a healthier environment for future generations?
