On Care for Our Common Home
The Encyclical Letter Laudato Si'
This appeal from Pope Francis to all who inhabit this planet states that humans have made "irresponsible use" of the Earth, that climate change affects most people living in poverty, and that we must unite to protect the planet. Ultimately, Pope Francis challenges all people to praise and thank God for his glorious creation and to work together to safeguard her. Laudato Si' will make an impact politically as well as upon the major environmental and economic debates of our time.
