Live Simply - Thought for the week...
Ballitoville Food waste causes just as much damage as plastic waste. Think about all the energy and resources it takes to produce, process and transport food. When we throw food away, we’re not only wasting the food, but all the energy that’s gone into making it. For example, the water footprint (the amount of water used in production and supply) of an orange is 80 ltrs, for 1kg of lettuce it’s 240 ltrs. By cutting food waste, the average UK household can save £500 a year and contribute to the UK’s waste reduction targets ACTION: Reduce food waste by buying what you need, freezing leftovers, check food regularly and use by and best before dates.
Bishop John's Pastoral Letter - 15th October 2023
Pope Francis - "Fratelli Tutti" - On Fraternity and Social Friendship
Essential reading for Catholics...
"Anyone who thinks that the only lesson to be learned [from the coronavirus pandemic and the way we have responded to it] was the need to improve what we were already doing, or to refine existing systems and regulations, is denying reality."

On care for our common home...
Never before was a Papal letter more enthusiastically received by other Christian Churches, other religions, politicians, scientists, believers and non-believers alike than Pope Francis’ letter on creation, “Laudato si”. It is a challenging read at 189 pages but is clearly written and has a message that we should all try to absorb. Explains why the Church is keen to embrace the principles of conservation and recognition of the challenges of climate change. Our parish has an active group that concerns itself with this and strives to involve all the parish in meeting these challenges.
