Climate healing by doing less — one day a week
There is a giant step the people of God can take next weekend to benefit the Earth’s climate. It’s simple, easy, everyone is capable of doing it and, best of all, it involves doing less not more. I’m not a climate scientist but I know this: if 70 million U.S. Catholics embraced Pope Francis’ encyclical, “Laudato Si’ ” (On care of creation) and honored the Lord’s Day by following the third commandment, we’d see a dramatic drop in greenhouse gases.
We don’t have a lot of time: The Guardian reported that 2021 ocean temperatures were the hottest in history. We all want to do something, but the problem is so big we lose heart. Recycling doesn’t stir the soul. And technology will not keep the immense Thwaites Glacier, a glacier the size of England, from breaking away into a warming Antarctic Ocean.
So, what can one person do? Not much, but 70 million U.S. Catholics could make a difference on the Sabbath, greatly reducing carbon in the atmosphere by literally doing less. If you’re waiting for God to save us, you’re too late. He told us how by writing it with his finger on a stone tablet several thousand years ago.
What would honoring the Sabbath look like?
— Worship and prayer, as usual.
— No shopping. With human lives at stake, is it so difficult to only shop six days?
— No driving. Hedges & Company reports about 1.446 billion vehicles on Earth in 2022 with 19 percent in the United States. Where possible, use public transport. Prohibiting commercial vehicles on Sundays would have a great impact. Is there a good reason we can’t walk, bike, bus or share rides to church?
—No work, except essential services. God gave clear instructions:
So, God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested … Gen 2:3.
—Recreation, spend time with family and friends while reducing car use.
Yes, this would disrupt the economy. So, do we disrupt the economy or destroy our common home? And, yes, we need to look at all human activities that cause damage but let’s start by honoring the Sabbath, creating a powerful, inspiring, beginning.
Embracing the Sabbath would help create a real time of rest from this weary world, a time for inward journeying, enabling us to more easily break into music and become joyful.
Something is very wrong and there isn’t much one person can do to reduce the threat, but if 70 million Catholics heard Pope Francis’ words in “Laudato Si’ ” and honored the Sabbath, we might all break into music and bring joy to our Mother Earth. And all it requires is that we do less — but do it together one day each week.

Wow, so much misinformation in such a small article. First, climate change is of course an observable fact throughout the history of the world. The religious and political nature though, of the fear mongering clergy and politicians claims and demands concerning it, continue to be highly contestable. Nevertheless, they march ahead implementing one policy and demand after another globally effecting the religion, politics, livelihood, economics, and financial status of all. Dissolving any semblance of Republican or Democratic government the world over. Governments formed by the will of the people in lengthy, bloody, violent, murderous, and extremely costly war against tyrants much like these new religious and political elitists pushing all of this agenda and more today. The end of all of this, will be exactly the same, only on a much more rapid scale. As divine intervention this time, will soon completely expose these tyrants for who and who they really are, leaving them to the judgments of those they have lorded themselves over, deceived, and abused. Picture the French Revolution on a global scale. Yet this judgment pales in significance to that which will immediately follow such carnage, the appearance and judgment of all humanity by the living God. Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. 15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Apparently the Catholic I presume, who wrote the article while admitting he is no scientist, seems to think that Pope Francis is. Is this what science has now become? The tool of religious, political, financial, and corporate entities intent upon subjugated the entirety of humanity under their elitist proclaiming thumbs? It appears to be so. Nor is this the first time to date, science has been used by tyrants to justify the implementation of their self aggrandizing and satanically impish lust for ultimate power over everyone. The so called sciences of this world, are of course tools in the hands of the many satanic imps of this world as well, and always have been. 1Ti 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; 19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. 20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.
Are not the Pope of Rome and his other religious and political minions now erring concerning the faith, using the sciences of this world falsely so called, for huge power grabs over and above all others? Yes they are.
It is fitting then of course, that they suggest the observance of a false man made sabbath as well, in support of their false man made science unto their own personal empowerment over all others. So now, the Pope of Rome, the man of sin and lawlessness, seeks to establish both his own created and or supported sciences and sabbath, as the law over all of humanity. Both of these man made sciences and laws being in direct contradiction of, and rebellion against, God's declared intentions concerning this world and His Sabbath.
The Pope and his minions claim to be the new saviors of the world. If only all will listen and submit to their falsely established so called sciences, and "Lord's" day, which contradict the plain testimony of God's word regarding both of the same. This world will not be saved, but rather destroyed by God Himself in judgment for the continuous crimes committed by its inhabitants against themselves and God since the fall of humanity. Many of which the papacy itself now fully supports and or even helps establish by law. Of course this is also only natural as their leader is the man of sin and or lawlessness. Nevertheless, according as God's word has declared, salvation is not of this world. Salvation is of the person alone, by Christ Jesus alone. The fate of this world has been sealed unto destruction by the word of God. Any and all who turn to Christ Jesus our Lord though, may be saved from the end of this world or their personal lives, which ever might come first. After which, they are privileged to be of the new heaven and new earth promised of God. Act 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
The man of sin and his minions have always called for all to observe their false sabbath as well. Enforcing the observance of this day by civil legislations all throughout the history of humanity during their existence, and doing so today whenever and wherever possible. Their example being followed and or joined by many misguided Christians of the past and present as well. Now today in this article appealing again to the observance of this false sabbath, in support of their chosen false sciences so called, while preaching their false gospel concerning the salvation of this world rather than the individuals within it. The effect of course is to make the commandment of God of none effect, through the observance of the traditions of men in its place.Mat 15:1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, 2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; 6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Who are these today making the commandments of God of none effect by their traditions? Are they not the scribes and pharisees of today? Are they not increasingly demanding submission to their false sciences, immorality, and now false sabbath, all of which make the commandments of God of none effect? Yes they are.
The observance of this false sabbath by civil law will be in fact, the culmination of all these false sciences and traditions of humanity intended to make God's law of none effect in this sin sick world. And this under the direct influence and supposed moral rectitude of the man of sin himself, and the day he has created as representative exactly of his power and influence above and beyond the word of God Himself. For this man of sin is nothing short of the son of Satan, and the head of the evil one's counterfeit institution of false salvation, BAYLON THE GREAT. The Sunday sacredness they intend to establish by human legislation the world over is nothing less than the Abomination of Desolation that the evil one and his minions will set up in the place of God's holy Sabbath. And it will bring desolation upon all of humanity who bow down to and honor it, making God's fourth commandment of none effect in doing so. Exo 20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,.......................................................................
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
There it is, straight out of the mouth of God. That which all of the false sciences and religions of this world reject and seek to replace with their own vain imaginings. Seeking to be the creators of their own world and destiny in defiance of the living God. So be it, according as they imagine. Let them create and firmly establish their own vision with fallen human wisdom, understanding, and laws, in direct contradiction of God's. Ending in the destiny they have chosen seeking existence outside of the living God who alone created and can sustain life.2Pe 3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: 3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Rev 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
