Laudato Si 230: Advice from the Little Flower

Earth from Apollo 8The encyclical letter Laudato Si is available here on the Vatican website. Advice from the young doctor:

230. Saint Therese of Lisieux invites us to practice the little way of love, not to miss out on a kind word, a smile or any small gesture which sows peace and friendship. An integral ecology is also made up of simple daily gestures which break with the logic of violence, exploitation and selfishness. In the end, a world of exacerbated consumption is at the same time a world which mistreats life in all its forms.

Contonuing on yesterday’s thought about online interaction, how often do bloggers (for example) offer those “simple daily gestures” to break the culture around us? When do we consider it?
