What is Happening on Our Beautiful Land: A Pastoral Letter on Ecology
Declaration by the Conference of Catholic Bishops in the Philippines in 1988 in response to the constant and growing environmental destruction of their country. They demand that people become more aware of the situation and participate more actively in trying to halt the ecological crisis in their land and on Earth in general. They note the number of wild species that lived in the Philippines before humankind lost its sensibility to the rhythms of the natural world. They emphasize above all the situation of forest and maritime ecosystems and the need to work together to ensure their conservation. They propose that people develop a new awareness of the natural world and God’s creation and suggest a series of measures that the Church, individual people, governments and NGOs should follow.
