Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience”. (Pope  Francis Encyclical Letter Laudato Si’ n. 217)

The care of creation begins with recognizing it as a work created and given, out of love, by God to man. It is up to us, as grateful children, to thank our Father for what we have received as a gift and to commit ourselves to preserving and defending it.

The Association Luisa Piccarreta L.C.D.W. considers the care of creation and the exaltation of beauty as the responsibility and vocation of every Christian. For this reason the Association wanted to adopt and re-evaluate two flowerbeds that are located in a central point of the city of Corato, as well as the figure of Luisa Piccarreta is nodal for our city and for the many pilgrims who come from all over the world to visit.

To educate to beauty means to grasp the thousand facets that are in us, in our neighbors and in what is around us and to work to increase, preserve and share its beauty. Therefore, I feel it is my duty to thank the companies of our city because they have believed in our initiative, aimed at the beautification and enhancement of the common good. In fact, they wanted to share the goodness, supporting us and flanking us to bring it to fruition.  I hope that it can develop more and more the sense of identity and belonging to a community in which everyone can and should give their contribution so that it grows and improves more and more.

I also hope that anyone walking in Cesare Battisti Square, regardless of their religious beliefs, will be moved by the desire to know the figure of Luisa Piccarreta. Luisa, our illustrious fellow citizen, recognized the love that God imprinted on all created things; she believed in mutual and working love. In fact, she told Jesus that if she could, she would have wanted to create for Him a sky, a sun, a sea...., to tell Him that she loved Him with His same love and with His same works, because love that does not work cannot be called love.

I extend my invitation to everyone to attend the inauguration of two trees dedicated to Luisa Piccarreta. It will be held Thursday, July 22, at 9,00 pm in Cesare Battisti Square. You can also follow the live broadcast on the YouTube channel of the Association
