‘Caring for our common home’

Greg Hitzhusen, an assistant professor in CFAES’s School of Environment and Natural Resources, wrote about Cardinal Peter Turkson’s Nov. 2 visit to Ohio State on his Faithful Earth Stewardship blog:

“The enthusiasm that greeted Cardinal Turkson reminds me of the spirit of my students in ENR 3470, Religion and Environmental Values in America … Their vision, creativity and energy will be a crucial ingredient if present and future generations are to rise to the challenges of caring for our common home.”

Turkson helped write the first draft of Pope Francis’s Laudato Si’ encyclical on climate change and the environment. Hitzhusen served on the committee that helped organize Turkson’s visit.
