Aqua fons vitae. Orientations on water, symbol of the cry of the poor and the cry of the earth
The Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development2020
This reflection and guidance document is to offer local Churches operational suggestions on the issue of water, development and the future of human life on Earth. The Church does not have the task of replacing governments or the United Nations. Yet, she cannot and must not remain on the side lines, in the fight for justice. Evangelical principles cannot and must not remain abstract, but need to be oriented towards concrete action and call upon each person. The Church is singularly able to enhance the fight for justice because it can marshal the forces of good. The actions provided in this document are aimed at promoting just relations with our brothers and sisters and with nature, especially through and with water. The purpose of this work is to accompany reflection, dialogue and action on water and its management.
