Here on the pulse of this new day
You may have the grace to look up and out
And into your sister's eyes,
Into your brother's face, your country
And say simply
Very simply
With hope
Good morning.

— Maya Angelou (1928-2014), Poet, singer, memoirist, and civil rights activist

Founded in 2006 by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Catholic Climate Covenant inspires and equips people and institutions to care for creation and care for the poor. "Through our 18 national partners, we guide the U.S. Church's response to climate change by educating, giving public witness, and offering resources." CCC's website has many useful resources in these categories: Laudato Si', Care for Creation, Environmental Justice, Homily Helps, Prayers and Worship, Reduce Your Carbon Footprint, Videos, & Webinars.
