Pope Urges Simpler, More Frugal, and Greener Life Styles


Pope urges, sober and responsible living along with respect for the environment.

"To learn to respect the environment also teaches respect for others and for oneself."

The Pope called for forming an "ethics of responsibility" that considers the well-being of future generation. Part of such an ethics is a culture geared toward appropriate behaviors, he said, particularly "more sober lifestyles." ~Zenit.

I really believe that with all the financial woes happening now that we are being called to live a more simple life.

I intend to write more about this later this week:).

Peace to you Alexandra:)

Thank you for posting this. I blogged about something similar this week, my hope that this will be a wake-up call to a simpler and more responsible way of life.
