The Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation
Today, Pope Francis, has released the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation "Querida Amazonia". We would like to invite you to read it in its entirety, feeling and tasting it internally, as St. Ignatius would say. A look so necessary from the Pope that it is addressed to the whole world “…to help awaken their affection and concern for that land which is also “ours”, and to invite them to value it and acknowledge it as a sacred mystery…” (QA 5)

CLC Italy and the Amazon Synod
CLC in Italy, in collaboration with the Jesuits of the Residence of St Ignatius in Rome, hosts a delegation of 25 people from the Amazon (itinerant team) who participate in the various activities surrounding the Amazon Synod in the Vatican. Below is a sharing of one of their encounters, as relayed by Maria Letizia (CVX in Rome Coordinator):
Many resonances on the testimony of Fernando Lopez sj and sr. Laura from the Itinerant Team during the Community Day for the opening of the social year, Sunday 13 October. We are living in Kairos, and the Synod on the Amazon is a sign of it, but it must also be a time of announcement, of denunciation, time of prophecy.
The Amazon teaches us to live the union in diversity; it would not be healthy in uniformity; everything is connected, we are connected to the earth and to the life of creatures: that the Church knows how to live this theological principle, maintaining unity in diversity, especially within itself!
The Amazon jungle needs us, we who live in the city jungle. We could not survive without one another; are we willing to fight to defend the life of the green forest, even if so far from us?
This is a Special Synod, as Fr. Lanzilli explained, born of specific requests from episcopal conferences in the geographical areas concerned. Amazonia, new paths for the church and the integrated ecology, is the title chosen, given the themes that we have chosen to collectively deal with.
It's no longer a church that visits, but a present church: the Synod involves everyone from below. The theme of integral ecology calls us to respect plurality and to let ourselves be enriched by diversity.
These in a nutshell are just some of the cues we heard.
It is with a deep sense of gratitude that at the end of the day we felt our horizon widen and reach a little further.
Thanks again to everyone for the participation and the contribution given to the organization of the day. And a further thank you if you want to share your resonances with us.

A Jesuit/Ignatian delegation will participate in the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development of the United Nations
On July 9, the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) will start in New York. It is a mechanism created by the United Nations to monitor and evaluate progress in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda regarding the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
This platform, convened by the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC), brings together states, international organizations, the private sector and civil society organizations with the aim of promoting accountability and exchange around compliance with the 2030 Agenda. This year, the general theme will be “Empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality”. The following objectives will be evaluated in detail: Objective number 4, relating to quality education; 8, which refers to economic growth and decent work; 10, on reduction of inequalities; 13, on the fight against climate change, 16, on peace, justice and institutions, and 17, the creation of global alliances. In addition, 49 countries will voluntarily submit their reviews on how they are carrying out the 2030 Agenda in their territories.
On the initiative of the Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat of the Society of Jesus, a Jesuit / Ignatian delegation will participate in this forum this year. In the words of Father General, Arturo Sosa, SJ: “This is an important event for the Society of Jesus, first of all because we have a long experience of working in all these fields in numerous places in the world: accompanying excluded persons and communities, working for justice and reconciliation and for the care of our common home. These themes have been confirmed in the recent Universal Apostolic Preferences, that we have received from the Holy Father, following the path traced by General Congregation 35 when it encouraged us to "establish links in the field of public advocacy between political power and those who find it difficult to make their voices heard, building bridges and offering new forms of understanding”.
The Jesuit / Ignatian delegation will attend the debates within the United Nations, it will organize the event entitled "How to collaborate in the care of the Common House" and participate in numerous events related to environmental sustainability, inequality, indigenous peoples, or the right to a quality education, among others.
Here you can consult the full program of the High Level Political Forum. For more information about the debates and events, make sure to follow us through our social media.

'If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.(1 Cor 13: 3-7)

Caring for Creation
At the heart of the Encyclical’s proposal is an integral ecology as a new paradigm of justice, an ecology "which respects our unique place as human beings in this world and our relationship to our surroundings" (LS. #15). Because we cannot understand nature as “something separate from ourselves or as a mere setting in which we live” (LS. #139).

Season of Creation
Dear Friends in CLC,
September 1 was proclaimed as the World Day of Prayer for Creation by the Orthodox Church in 1989, and many other Christian churches have joined since then, with Pope Francis most recently in 2015. It was then extended to be a month-long Season of Creation, ending on October 4 (Feast of St. Francis).
You are encouraged to participate by organizing prayer services (you can use our Progressio Supplement 72! http://www.cvx-clc.net/l-en/progressio.php ) and activities for engaging the ecological crisis.

A platform for linking local CLC action on the Ecology Frontier
On Local Action
Our national communities have been initiating local efforts to respond to Laudato Si. Much of the efforts have been in the form of prayer and reflection spaces; in others, National assemblies have focused on the theme of Ecology, and have produced some materials and action steps for national action. Local action continues to be relevant because these give the necessary contextual and cultural characteristics for effective action.

Our Local Efforts Linked Together
Currently, through the efforts of the CLC Ecology Commission, we have linked with the Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM)- a network of Catholic communities, organizations and partners who would like to unite various local and global efforts under a common platform. Common actions that we encourage CLC participation through GCCM are:

•Signing a petition for leaders to keep the temperature rise below 1.5C
•COP21 Paris Climate Summit Prayer (which can be done individually, or by communities)
•Global Climate March (Nov 29)

This is currently our platform for united action. We strongly encourage you to link your CLC activities in the Ecology Frontier (whether it be vigils, advocacy letters and other apostolic action) with this in mind, and to register as CLC groups in their website: http://catholicclimatemovement.global/take-action/ . By doing this, we connect beyond our world CLC community and move closer to actual global common action.

As local communities, we are encouraged to continue our locally discerned callings and responses to our Ecology Frontier. But know that we are part of a larger-spanning endeavor to care for our common home, through GCCM, and the larger human community.

Please do not hesitate to share your actions and invitations via our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CVX-CLC-6562037665/ . And check our site for important World CLC updates: http://cvx-clc.net/

Let us continue to pray together for each other and our world.

We intend to be present where the migrants come in and search the first aid in Italy. According to G.P. 8 and "aware of the pressing need to work for justice through a preferential option for the poor, and a simple lifestyle that manifests our freedom and our solidarity with them," with this project CLC / LMS seeks a dual purpose:
 be neighbour to each other in difficulty,
 make those who work for justice do not feel alone.

Ignatius 500
CLC-CVX wants to join Ignatius 500, the celebration that marks the 500th anniversary of St. Ignatius’s conversion, with an international youth gathering in Loyola.
The Ignatian charisma so prized by Society of Jesus and shared by many has spread throughout many corners of the planet, and resonates with youth in a very special way.
In the gathering, young people will be able to experience their own conversion, as a reflection of St. Ignatius’s own personal transformation.
In keeping with Ignatius’s own experience, we will experience the Wound, just as today we face a wounded world in which so many are suffering.
Guided by the imagery of Ignatius’s experience, there will be the symbolic Tower of his house, recalling the strength that compels us to go forth and discern which frontiers we are called to inhabit.
As Ignatius did, we’ll go on a Pilgrimage, to encounter others along the way and build God’s Kingdom with others and for all.
And finally we’ll experience the Celebration alongside the entire Ignatian family, before going back to our countries of origin, confident that we have forged bonds with new friends in the Lord, offering all we are and in the hope of serving better wherever we are.
All of this in order to embrace the world, seeking to ease His creatures’ suffering, in the manner of St. Ignatius.
We’ll be joined by experts, Jesuits and CLC-CVX members, who will accompany us on this journey by sharing their knowledge and experience. And we will also receive the visit and message of the Society’s Superior General Arturo Sosa.
So, don’t miss all the information we’ll be sharing on our Social Media!
