Making Laudato Si’ a part of your life

"What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?" (#160)

Pope Francis asks this in his encyclical addressed to "every person living on this planet" and invites us to enter into a dialogue about our common home.

The letter takes its name from the opening of the Canticle of the Crea-tures by St. Francis of Assisi, Laudato Si’ or Praise be, to remind us that the earth, our common home "is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us."

The encyclical centers around the concept of integral ecology to describe the relationships of the person: with God, with one’s self, with other human beings, with creation. In six chapters, Pope Francis teaches that science is the best tool by which we can listen to the cry of the earth. Our faith and Church teaching call us to right relationships and dialogue, particular-ly between politics and economy, and between religion and science, as they pertain to the care of our common home.

For the next six weeks I invite you to reflect on the major themes and challenges presented in each of the chapters and as in the words of Pope Francis, how " the ecological crisis summons us to a 'profound spiritual conversion"
