Popes encyclical letter, Laudato Si, for Worldwide Day of Rest

Everyone, take a look as clearly the National Sunday Law planning and implementation is being laid out right before our very eyes..

If you go through the May 2020 Popes encyclical letter, 'Laudato Si', you find is suggested to be enforced by the nations.

Pope Francis updated May 2020 plan is to rally Nations behind Climate Change and Sunday law.

The encyclical is called Laudato Si, and is the Pope's encyclical on climate change, which looks on the surface as just reducing carbon emissions, carpooling, planting trees and recycling, etc....But  in the encyclical, the Pope suggest also a worldwide day of rest, Sundays with keeping a better environment.

The implication here is that we need to have a law mandating rest on Sunday, so it appears that his agenda on climate change includes giving Sunday rest and worship mandated by law to improve the environment.. The Pope is asking the world to join this rest, take a look..

In his May 2020 encyclical updated letter 'Laudato S?i'.
"...As part of this year's anniversary activities, a 'Laudato Si' Action Platform will also be launched, with various institutions committing to a 7-year project aimed at reaching total sustainability in the spirit of Laudato S'i.
Among the goals of the platform, according to the Vatican's department for Integral Human Development, are adopting simpler lifestyles and developing ?ecological economics? based on sustainable production, fair trade, using less plastic and adopting a more plant-based diet to reduce meat consumption, as well as a broader use of public transport in order to reduce pollution.
According to their communique, the Vatican's development office intends to launch the platform in early 2021 by inviting several institutions to begin the 7-year project. The following year, they will encourage a new group to join, with the hope of doubling the number of entities committing to the 7-year plan.
In this way we are planning to grow a Laudato Si ' inspired network that continues to expand and grow exponentially each year,' they said, noting that this initiative will continue for each consecutive year of the new decade, with the goal of arriving at the 'critical mass' needed in order to lead a 'radical societal transformation' inspired by Pope Francis in Laudato Si......"

The encyclical letter Laudato Si is available here on the Vatican website. And so we come to the notion of rest, or more accurately, Sabbath:
237. On Sunday, our participation in the Eucharist has special importance. Sunday, like the Jewish Sabbath, is meant to be a day which heals our relationships with God, with ourselves, with others and with the world. Sunday is the day of the Resurrection, the 'first day' of the new creation, whose first fruits are the Lord's risen humanity, the pledge of the final transfiguration of all created reality. It also proclaims '(humankind's) eternal rest in God'.[CCC 2175] In this way, Christian spirituality incorporates the value of relaxation and festivity.

And look how everyone agrees what a great idea....

Dangerous Plans the Pope has... God's people will need a shelter in that time. Let us prepare now if we are not yet ready before this small window of preparation also closes. But we are not afraid,unless we forget how God has led us in the past. And our king,Jesus already worn this battle.

The big to do what we have to do- PRAYERS.

Where there is a will, there is a way.

We need to review ourselves and prepare for these final events we know will come and the struggle of the last days.

This is being pushed by unseen forces, and now the Pope is bringing it to a head...

"The 10:10 movement supported by the Guardian is a wonderful way to empower ordinary people to participate in the great movement of mitigating global warming. We cannot wait until governments are enlightened enough to legislate and cap the carbon emissions. Matters are urgent. We have to act now, without any delay. The power of public opinion and citizen action will have a strong impact on the climate conference taking place in Copenhagen.

One thing we can easily do to achieve this goal: we can declare Sunday to be a fossil fuel-free day or a low-carbon day or at least an energy-saving day. We can start this week, this month or in 2010. We can start individually and collectively. The long journey to cut carbon dioxide emissions can start in the here and now."


Once A Week, Give Our Beautiful Planet A Day Of Rest. A Green Sabbath Day.



Green Sabbath is a non-religious, non-political, and non-profit campaign which aims to raise awareness and to encourage people to help slow climate change, preserve precious natural resources and improve planet health by observing at least one carbon footprint-free day each week--on any day of the week. We call it symbolically A Green Sabbath day.


They are even having children write the articles...

"In the current hazardous state that we are in, more proactive measures have to be taken. It is not impossible to lower the global temperature or slow its increase. Stopping everything for one day could save our jobs, our planet and our future."..

And even Adventist churches are being sucked into its grasp....

Here is Doug Batchelor on this issue..
