The conference, COP27, taking place in Egypt is another moment of great importance in the history of our planet. When I was at university, 45 years ago (!!) I was studying the probable consequences of our consumption of the planet’s resources, namely global warming. No-one seemed to be listening then. At least now, world leaders are expressing an aspiration to do something about it. We must pray that they will at last take action to match their fine words and we, for our part, must be prepared to pay what it costs.
God Bless, Fr Doug
