The Mysticism of Laudato Si’28
WHAT OUGHT I DO?
The Ignatian review of consciousness or examen can help convert us to care for creation and for the most vulnerable of the human family. The pope is unequivocal: ‘Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience’ (217). So find a quiet place to meet the Lord: sit with him and quietly gaze in on the world as an astronaut would. He is ‘present to everyone and everything’ (226). So you can chat as friend to friend.
