and beautiful things of Nature…THINK of their marvelous adaptation to our needs
sunshine and the rain that gladden and refresh the earth,
the hills, the seas, and the plains,
lovely birds filling the air with their happy songs,
delicately roseate flowers perfuming the air,
the lofty trees of the forest with their rich

done to Mother Earth which testifies of God’s love?
WHERE are the clean
waters…the fresh air…the wildlife in all its splendor with its beautiful birds,
graceful deer, playful monkeys, lumbering buffaloes, and thundering wild boar…
the oceans teeming with all kinds of fish…
the virgin forests… the smell of blushing
the crystal clear
lakes…the winding rivers…
Where is this lovely
and pristine environment which was the home of our forefathers?
NOW the air is filled
with deadly toxins and awful noise…our waters are polluted by industrial and
commercial wastes from the burning of gasoline and other petroleum products…some

In our own little school, how do we show love for
God’s creation? There are myriad of ways!
We show love by bending our backs to

We show love by helping keep our
classroom free from trash…

Let us lift our eyes and our will to Jesus in the
