On behalf of the entire CYNESA team, I wish you and your loved ones a blessed Christmas season and a most fulfilling new year!
Thank you for your support all through 2019, the year of our 5th
anniversary. Your support, prayers and warm wishes, especially during our Laudato Si’ conference, July 15th
, were greatly appreciated and received. We cannot wait to build on the foundations you have helped us lay these past 5 years-and to look to the next 5 with great hope, hard work and commitment to care for our common home.
A lot remains to be done. Southern Africa is experiencing the worst drought in a decade. You may have seen photos of the Victoria Falls drying up in recent weeks, leaving many families facing the danger of famine, and hundreds of domestic animals and wildlife dead. In Eastern Africa, many communities are reeling from weeks of severe flooding after torrential rains. While these events unfolded, governments were unable to make any meaningful at the COP25 UN Climate in Madrid. But we cannot give up. We are people of hope.
Let us rededicate ourselves to the task ahead, and may Christ be born in our hearts and lives, and strengthen us in our care for all of creation. Merry Christmas and Happy 2020!
