Forgive Us Our Eco-Sins

Recently at a Greenpeace fair, a British priest heard "eco-confessions" in a bid to raise awareness of the need for an examination of conscience on environmental issues.

Donned in green robes, Fr Anthony Sutch said "It is not blasphemous, it is not joking about the Catholic church and sacramental confession. It will be serious about how we live and the effect of how we live."

"The Catholic church is very concerned about green issues. It comes from scripture that we should care for our planet. We are becoming more and more aware of the damage we are doing."
