Fr Hugh O’Donnell sent ECI this update:
Over a week ago, Brenda Farrell brought the Climate Justice Candle (by bus!) to the parish of Our Lady of Lourdes on Sean McDermott Street. We are delighted that it can now burn brightly again (after a year and a half in lockdown) especially as we draw closer to the UN Biodiversity Conference in October and the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) in November.
During our watch we kept the candle lit for those most adversely affected by our runaway climate and remind ourselves that our extravagant way of living is at the expense of others. ‘What you did not do for the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you did not do for me’ (Matt 25: 45).
