Season of Creation: In Cambodia Catholics Join Buddhists

“We all have the responsibility to protect the common home in which we live”, said Monsignor Enrique Figaredo, apostolic prefect of Battambang.

The Jesuit prelate invited the faithful in Battambang, about 300 kilometers northwest of Cambodian capital Phnom Penh, to celebrate the season with the spirit of Laudato Si’, the groundbreaking 2015 encyclical of Pope Francis where he called on people to care for their common home.  

Monsignor Figaredo said that “we live the joyful experience of collaborating with Buddhist monks for the good of the environment, of society, side by side, united for a better future.”
