Holiness and Respect

Week Three: March 7 – March 13

The Sunday readings for this week can be found here.


Teilhard de Chardin said the world is in truth a holy place. God wants us to use this holy place appropriately. God gives us the Ten Commandments to guide us in doing this. Jesus
saw the temple being used inappropriately and was angry.

Do we use the resources God gave us in the way God wants us to? What about the way we use God’s holy world might anger Christ today?


  1. Read the encyclical Laudato Si or Fratelli Tutti.
  2. Let your yard or some spot of earth be pleasing to God or give glory to God.
  3. Write a letter to a company that doesn’t seem to use resources appropriately.
  4. Don’t waste any food.

Used for inspiration for the reflection:
