To act for the common good at any level of society is to exercise social love. God empowered us for service. What kind of leaders do each of us need to become in order to work toward the flourishing of the world? Laudato Si’ points out the need to decrease our levels of consumption and the need for strong legal frameworks. In light of the ecological debt, intergenerational solidarity is urgent. In this module we will take a look at leadership examples found in Scripture, and go deeper into the meaning of reconciliation and the need for decolonizing minds and hearts.
We are called to be instruments of God...
so that our planet might be what he desired when he created it
and correspond with his plan for peace, beauty and fullness.
Pope Francis, Laudato Si’ Nº 53
