Ten Things You Need to Know About the Encyclical

Pope Francis’ Encyclical, Laudato Si’:
On Care for Our Common Home

Laudato Si’ (“Praised Be”), Pope Francis reminds us that as stewards, not owners, of the earth God created for us, we have a moral obligation to cherish and care for the environment. How we care for our environment is linked to how we love our neighbor and respect one another. Click here for a link to the encyclical, prayers, and other resources.
