Blantyre, 26 May, 2022 / 9:30 pm (ACI Africa).
Officials of the Catholic Development Commission in Malawi (CADECOM) of the Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) have called for collaboration in the efforts aimed at conserving the environment in the Southern African nation.
In their Monday, May 23 statement, CADECOM officials made reference to the Laudato Si' Week 2022 that had kicked off the previous day and expressed their solidarity with the Holy Father in the climate change adaptation and mitigation campaign.
“We call upon concerted efforts that leave no one behind in caring for our mother earth as called upon by Pope Francis,” officials of the development arm of the ECM said.
In the statement signed by CADECOM National coordinator, Chimwemwe Sakunda, the officials said that the issue of climate change can be solved and that the “solution lies amidst the existing resources freely granted to us by God.”
Organized under the theme, “Listening and Journeying together”, Laudato Si’ Week began as a way to celebrate the first anniversary of Pope Francis’ 2015 world-changing Encyclical Letter, Laudato Si’, “On Care for Our Common Home.”
