We are part of a single, wondrously complex web of life that is woven by God. Each  year from September 1 to October 4, the Christian family celebrates the good gift  of creation.
The theme for this year is "the web of life: biodiversity as God's blessing."  During this month, the Season of Creation let us pray, act and advocate on behalf of our common home, that we may "take good care of creation - a gift freely given - cultivating and protecting it for future generations." (Pope Francis).
The biblical witness is that the web of life - biodiversity - matters not only because  human well-being depends on stable and thriving ecosystems and the services  they give to us, from clean water and food, to oxygen, clothing and climate  regulation, and all the 'resources' we use from nature. Biodiversity matters firstly  because God gives value to every creature that is created. READ MORE
