Laudato Si’ – A Review and Personal Commentary - 8
On Care of Our Common Home
CHAPTER SIX: Ecological Education and
In this chapter, Francis is asking all human
beings to change, i.e. to have an interior conversion.
(#202) Very simply, if our new way of thinking about
the environment does not affect our way of thinking,
then “the paradigm of consumerism will continue to
advance with the help of the media and the highly
effective workings of the market.” (#215)
I. Toward a New Lifestyle
People can get caught up with “compulsive
consumerism.” (#203) But Francis believes that
human beings are “capable of rising above
themselves, choosing again what is good, and making
a new start…’ (#205) Boycotts (e.g. of Concord
grapes, Cannon linen and towels, the buses in
Birmingham, AL, etc.) are effective, and they force
businesses to have a greater sense of social
responsibility for their products. (#206) We human
beings “are always capable of going out of ourselves
toward the other.” (#208)
II. Educating for the Covenant Between Humanity
and the Environment
The Pope is not only concerned for change
among politicians and the market-drivers; he also
believes that everyone -- you and me -- can make the
greatest changes in consumer habits. (#209) Everyone
needs education “centered on scientific information,
consciousness-raising, and the prevention of
environmental risks. (#210) Everyone -- both
governmental entities and individuals -- can take
environmental responsibility and can act in ways
“that directly and significantly affect other
practices.” (#211) This training in “care for all
creatures” begins “in the family.” (#213) The church,
too, has an important role in raising awareness and
responsibility regarding education concerning the
environment. (#214) “We need to realize that certain
mindsets really do influence our behavior (#215) and
really do change the world. (#212)
III. Ecological Conversion
In many respects, this section is the heart of
the encyclical. Pope Francis suggests that we gain an
“ecological spirituality” which will be the foundation
for our doctrinal teachings. “[S]uch a spirituality can
motivate us to a more passionate concern for the
protection of our world.” He is moving us, the
readers, to be committed to put our faith into practice.
(#216) In the process, he is also leading us to have an
mine.) He desires that “the effects of [Christians’]
encounter with Jesus Christ become evident in their
relationship with the world around them. Francis
wants us to recognize our “errors, sins, faults, and
failures.” This recognition leads us to a “heartfelt
repentance” for those sins and a “desire to
change.” (#218) He goes farther. He desires that “the
ecological conversion which is needed to bring about
lasting change is also a community
conversion.” (#219) When we (plural) realize that
creation is God’s gift to us, we become grateful for
God’s abundant generosity. Our gratitude leads us to
respond lovingly, i.e. not by dominating the earth but
by caring for it. (#220) Our “awareness that every
creature reflects something of God and has a message
for us” enables us to enjoy the beauty even of the
wild flowers and different kinds of stones. Our
awareness “that Christ has taken unto Himself the
material world and now, risen, is present to each
being” enables us to treat each being as a part of the
Cosmic Christ. (#221)
IV. Joy and Peace
“A prophetic and contemplative spirituality”
ought to assist us to be interiorly “free of the
obsession of consumerism.” Then we are content in
the “conviction that ‘less is more.’” (#222)
“Happiness means knowing how to limit some needs
that only diminish us and being open to the many
different possibilities that life can offer. (#223)
Humility enables us to be enthralled with any
possibility of mastering things without excluding God
and without harming society or the environment.
(#224) “Inner peace is closely related to care for
ecology and for the common good…” (#225) We
must strive for an “attitude of heart…that is capable
of being fully present to someone…and that accepts
each moment as a gift from God.” (#226) Grace
before and after meals is an expression of this
attitude. (#227)

Advent Directed Retreat
November 29 - December 5, 2015
Our Advent Week of Directed Prayer has been a great
success. It enables the participants to get into the Advent Season
and to deepen their relationship with God. A team of Ignatian
Spiritual Directors will provide individual prayer direction for
interested parishioners in a “retreat” which you can do at home.
The retreat will begin with a group meeting on Sunday, Nov.
29th from 1:15pm - 2:15pm. During the week (Monday - Friday),
each person making the retreat will meet with an Ignatian Spiritual Director for 30
minutes daily. Your director will discuss prayer with you and suggest Scripture for you
to pray each day of the retreat. On Saturday, Dec. 5th, all participants will gather after
the 9:00am Mass for the conclusion of the retreat.
The only requirement is your commitment to pray for approximately 30 minutes
each day during this time and to meet with your spiritual director daily.
For more information and/or to register, please fill out a registration form and
return it to the parish office, or call the parish office at 704-664-3992 by Wednesday,
November 25th. You can use the registration form below or the one on the parish

2nd Collection Next Weekend - November 21st and 22nd
Next week’s collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) needs
your help. CCHD was founded to end the cycle of poverty in the United States by funding
organizations that help individuals help themselves. With the tradition of improving
education, housing situations, and community economic development, CCHD continues to
make a positive impact in communities nationwide. Your contribution will defend human
dignity and reach out to those living on the margins. Please give to the CCHD collection.
Thank you for your generosity with our Christian
Mission/Soup Kitchen drive. We collected a truck
load of food and coats for Christian Mission and 560
lbs. of food was brought to the Soup Kitchen.
Some people can be the face of the Commission and
do the collections. But, every time that you make a
donation of food for the pantry & Christian Mission,
or donate money for the Holiday Gift Baskets, or take
a tag off the Giving Tree, you are a steward of
Outreach. The Commission hopes that you
understand that our success is because of your
participation. We appreciate all that you do.

The rose in our logo was designed to match the
roses being held by St. Therese in our new

inside appears white. Roses have a special
significance for Pope Francis. V atican Insider
quotes an interview with then-Cardinal
Bergoglio by Sergio Rubin and Francesca
Ambrogetti in the book El Jesuita (The Jesuit):
In a description the two journalists give of
Bergoglio’s library in Buenos Aires, they write:
“We pause before a vase full of white roses
standing on a shelf in the library. In front of it is
a photograph of Saint Thérèse. “Whenever I
have a problem,” Bergoglio explained to the
journalists, “I ask the saint not to solve it, but to
take it into her hands and to help me accept it
and I almost always receive a white rose as a

Class Spotlight
The Loyola Press Finding God series for students in
6th grade presents the salvation history of the Old
Testament. In order to understand God reveals
himself to us through Christ, we must learn how he
revealed himself to the Israelites. Before sending his
Son to us, the Father sent us leaders. The stories of
Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David and Solomon show us
how God formed a family of faith – the Chosen
People. The final unit of their text is titled Morality,
Our Lived Faith. In this
unit the focus of this unit
is on living like Jesus.
This unit serves as
introduction to the
material on the Gospels
and the rest of the New
Testament they will learn
in the 7th grade.
To show that God is at the center of their lives, many
families enthrone the Bible, the Word of God, in a
visible place in their homes. By placing the Sacred
Scriptures in a prominent place decorated with
flowers and art, and by gathering at this spot for daily
prayer, families show that God is present and active
through his Word.
Enthroning the Bible in your home is easy. Simply
pick a place where the Bible can be honored. The
Bible should be placed where it will be seen
regularly, but the location should be apart from the
noise and confusion of the family entertainment
center. Place the Bible, opened to a favorite passage
or the readings of the day (these can be found at, on a table or shelf. Decorate
the area around the Bible with a cloth, flowers, and/or
a candle—whatever makes sense to you.

“La Esquina Ignaciana”
El miércoles de esta semana la iglesia celebrará la fiesta de una mujer
que no está bien conocida por la mayoría de nosotros pero que es una
persona que vale la pena conocer especialmente por los miembros de
una parroquia jesuita. Se llama Rose Philippine Duchense y ella fue
canonizada por Juan Pablo II en al año 1988. Ella es la producto de los
últimos años del siglo XVIII cuando Francia estaba pasando por un
tiempo muy agitado por las ideas revolucionarios que causaron que la
monarquía cayera y que un mundo nuevo apareciera en la persona de
Napoleón Bonaparte.
Rose nació a una familia bien conocida y muy grande. Desde sus
primeros años de la educación Rose mostró una atracción por la vida
monástica y con diecinueve años entró la congregación de la Visitación de la Virgen María.
El Reino de Terror destruyó el monasterio en que vivía en el año 1792 y todas las monjas
tenían que regresar a sus familias. Nueve años más tarde Rose volvió a las ruinas del antiguo
convento y, con pocas otras, intentaron a restaurar la comunidad. No era posible pero en esta
misma época otra santa, Sophie Barat, estaba en el proceso de fundar una congregación
nueva, La Sociedad del Corazón de Jesús, una congregación innovadora cuya visión fue a
ofrecer una educación sólida a las jóvenes mujeres durante aquel momento histórico de la
transición política-cultural por la cual el país estaba sufriendo.
Las dos santas
inmediatamente se hicieron amigos por la vida y aquella amistad produjo el resultado feliz
que las madres de la Visitación pasaron a ser miembros de la Sociedad de Santa Sophie y
juntas empezaron una vida apostólica dinámica.
En al año, 1817, el obispo del Diócesis de Luisiana y los dos Floridas visitó el colegio de las
monjas de la nueva congregación en Paris. Su visita despertó un deseo viejo en el corazón de
Rose. Se ofreció a ir a la misiones de América y la aceptaron. Desde este año ella trabajaba
en situaciones muy estrechas y difíciles entre los pioneros de las llanuras de Misuri y Kansas
y entre los pueblos indígenas de aquel territorio y hasta las montañas Rocky. Murió con 88
años, una fiel servidora a todos los que la necesitan como había vivido durante toda su vida.
¿Por qué Rose es un modelo importante especialmente para nosotros, feligreses de una
parroquia dirigida por la Compañía de Jesús? Las Religiosas del Corazón de Jesús, “las
Señoras” como se están conocidas, desde sus comienzos han implementado, en una manera
distinguida, el espíritu de las constituciones de los Jesuitas en sus reglas y su manera de vivir.
La disponibilidad, la espontaneidad, la valentía apostólica, el deseo a conocer la voluntad de
Dios y ponerla en práctica han sido las características fundamentales de la congregación
desde su origen. La vida de Rose muestra, en cada momento, aquella flexibilidad tan querido
por san Ignacio. Con las ricas y las pobres, en pueblos y en el campo, con éxito y fracaso
Rose sirvió a su Señor con el mismo entusiasmo, el mismo gozo y la misma tenacidad que
permanecieron como signos perdurables de la “indiferencia” ignaciana que inspiró su vida
Como miembros de la Parroquia de Santa Terecita ¿queremos entender la espiritualidad
ignaciana? Hay que mirar a las personas que practican aquella espiritualidad en una manera
eminente. Esta semana nuestra iglesia nos ofrece semejante persona. Santa Rose Philippine
Duchense, ruega por nosotros.
