With the Season of Creation approaching (1 September - 4 October) - I wanted to take a closer look at what an ecological conversion entails. Pope Francis has some causes very close to his heart. Ecumenism and inclusivity for instance. Tackling clericalism and environmental degradation are two others.
All of them matter, but the one I am concerned with here is ecological conversion. In fact, the Pope doesn't think that we can tackle environmental degradation, which has reached a critical stage, without undergoing an ecological conversion.
