Easter is the celebration of the new life offered to us in the risen Jesus. With the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, we are empowered to change our personal lives and confront the collective problems that we face in society. In Chapter VI of Laudato Si', Pope Francis exhorts us to study the world around us and to educate ourselves and others regarding the real state of our world. He calls us to foster a new spirituality that is personally holy, fraternally responsible, and respectful of the Earth. And he challenges us to change our lifestyles in a way that will bring about real renewal.
