Who Is My Neighbor in a Climate-Threatened World
Catholic Climate Covenant presents us with some wonderful resources. Every October 4th, the Feast of St. Francis (FOSF) celebrates the saint who saw all created beings as his brother or sister. Inspired by this example, Catholic Climate Covenant produces a free 90-minute catechetical program to help parishes, schools, and faith communities explore how they can better care for creation and the poor.

Religious and Secular Literacy: Dialogue in a Liberal Democracy
The Latest Blogpost of Fr. Carl Chudy for Secular Spectrum
In May of 2018, the Council on Foreign Relations organized a workshop on “Religious Literacy in Global Affairs,” as part of their Religion and Foreign Policy Workshop. The CFR Religion and Foreign Policy program serves as a resource for the faith community, bringing together congregational and lay leaders, religion scholars, and representatives of faith-based organizations for conversations on issues at the intersection of religion and global affairs. I daresay, it is an useful resource for nonreligious people as well. I was fortunate to take part and the subject and I wanted to share are some insights from their conversation which has something to say to both secular and religious people.
