Ask Fr. Barron: What to say to Catholics who struggle with Church teaching?
Catholic teaching on climate change embraces the principles of prudence, poverty and the common good. These three principles form the foundation of our work.
“Prudence does not mean failing to accept responsibilities and postponing decisions; it means being committed to making joint decisions after pondering responsibly the road to be taken, decisions aimed at strengthening that covenant between human beings and the environment, which should mirror the creative love of God, from whom we come and towards whom we are journeying.” —Pope Benedict XVI, World Day of Peace Message, December 2007
