As we saw yesterday in The Story of Stuff, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet that damage is hidden from view. There is a connection between a huge number of environmental and social issues and our consumption habits. But what does our faith have to say about all this?
Monsignor Charles Murphy is a priest in the Diocese of Portland, Maine, who has written several books about our relationship with the environment. He looks at the issue of consumption through the lens of his Catholic faith, and shares his insights in “The Good Life from a Catholic Perspective: The Challenge of Consumption.”
