The 2015 Yearbook confronts the theme of ecology from a very particular point of view: the Society of Jesus’ growing awareness of this huge problem. The last General Congregation – the highest Jesuit legislative body – said much about it in 2008, affirming among things,“Care of the environment affects the quality of our relationships with God, with other human beings, and with creation itself. It touches the core of our faith in and love for God. . .. The drive to access and exploit sources of energy and other natural resources is very rapidly widening the damage to earth, air, water, and our whole environment, to the point that the future of our planet is threatened.
