The earth is the common home of humanity. It is a gift from God. Yet man’s abuse of freedom threatens that home. In his encyclicalPraise Be to You (Laudato Si’), Pope Francis challenges all people to praise God for his glorious creation and to work to safeguard her. The encyclical letter takes its name from St. Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Creatures, which depicts creation as “a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us”. “This sister”, Pope Francis declares, “now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her”. He calls for an “integral ecology” based on what Pope St John Paul called an “ecological conversion”—a moral transformation linking the proper response to God for the gift of his creation to concern for justice, especially for the poor. He challenges people to understand ecology in terms of the right ordering of the fundamental relationships of the human person: with God, oneself, other people, and the rest of creation. Francis examines such ecological concerns as pollution, waste, and what he calls “the throwaway culture”. Climate, he insists, is a common good to be protected. He explores the proper use of natural resources and notions such as sustainability from a Judeo-Christian perspective. The loss of biodiversity due to human activities, decline in the quality of life for many people, global inequality of resources, as well as concerns over consumerism and excessive individualism also threaten the good order of creation, writes Pope Francis. While valuing technology and invnovation, he rejects efforts to repudiate the natural order, including the moral law inscribed in human nature or to rely simply on science to solve ecological problems. Moral and spiritual resources are crucial, including openness to God’s purpose for the world. Expounding the biblical tradition regarding creation and redemption in Christ, Francis stresses man’s subordination to God’s plan and the universal communion of all creation. “Dominion”, he maintains, means “responsible stewardship” rather than exploitation. He rejects treating creation as if it were “divine” and insists on the primacy of the human person in creation. He also explores the roots of the ecological crisis in man’s abuse of technology, his self-centeredness, and the rise of practical relativism. Without rejecting political changes, he implores people to change their hearts and their ways of life. Popes Benedict XVI, St John Paul II, and Blessed Paul VI addressed key themes regarding stewardship of God’s creation and justice in the world. But Pope Francis is the first to devote an entire encyclical to the subject.

The name of the text, Laudato si’, published on 18 June 2015, recalls the phrase that begins the “Canticle of Creatures” by St. Francis Assisi, patron saint of creation, the poor and peace. That is the reason he adopted the name Francis after being elected pontiff. At the presentation at FAO headquarters on 27 October 2015 joining the Director General of FAO, José Graziano da Silva, were Laurence Argimon Pistre, Permanent Representative of the European Union in the agencies of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome; Monsignor Fernando Chica Arellano, Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the agencies of the United Nations Food and Agriculture in Rome, Cardinals Jean-Louis Tauran, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue and Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson, President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the spiritual, moral and practical themes of Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si'. Leading theologians, ethicists, scientists and economists provide accessible overviews of the encyclical's major teachings, the science it engages and the policies required to address the climate crisis. Chapters on the encyclical's theological and moral teachings situate them within the Christian tradition and papal teaching. Science and policy chapters, engaging the encyclical and provide introductions to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The book provides a guide for those wishing to explore the issues raised by Laudato Si' but who lack the specialist knowledge required to know where to begin. Aimed at an undergraduate audience, this book provides a reliable introduction to the major themes of Laudato Si' such as: - a theology of Creation that embraces the insights of contemporary science - a renewed understanding of the human person in relationship to the rest of creation - a spiritual vision of love and responsibility for all creation - the necessary connection between Christian solidarity with the poor and concern for the environment - an introduction to the social encyclical tradition from which Laudato Si' both draws and develops

The publication of Laudato Si’—a papal encyclical on a defining issue of our times—was a moment of great importance for Catholics and for the world. Now Fr. Joshtrom Kureethadam, one of the church’s top experts on the document, provides a thoughtful, passionate, and highly accessible commentary on its key ideas and themes. Faithfully attentive to the outline of the six chapters of the encyclical, Fr. Joshtrom has also insightfully arranged the book according to the See-Judge-Act methodology that is increasingly used in spirituality, moral theology, and the social sciences. If Pope Francis is right when he insists that the solution to our environmental problems cannot be found only in technocratic approaches by governments and institutions, but by a wide and thoughtful embrace by all of us of our common responsibility, then Fr. Joshtrom’s book is precisely what we need at this time.

"Laudato si, mi Signore, per sora nostra matre terra"

Moderne Krisen, die aus Klimaerwärmung, Belastung der «Biosphäre», Zerstörung der Artenvielfalt, der Vermassung und Vereinsamung des Menschen erwachsen, erklären den Rekurs auf das alternative Lebensmodell des mittelalterlichen «Aussteigers» Franz von Assisi. Sein Cantico delle creature ist ein Hymnus auf die Schönheit, den Eigenwert und die Ganzheitlichkeit der Schöpfung: «Laudato si, mi Signore, per sora nostra matre terra (Gelobt seist du, mein Herr, für unsere Schwester Mutter Erde)». Zum ersten Mal in der abendländischen Literatur wird die Umwelt zur Mitwelt. Die kontextuelle Spiegelung des «Sonnengesangs» in den Künsten, den Naturwissenschaften, der Theologie und der populären Kultur ist Thema dieses Berichtes. Durch Bereitstellung und Sichtung gleichnishafter Entwürfe gegen Umwelt- und Identitätskrisen, gegen Macht- und Besitzdenken, gegen Freud-, Fried- und Orientierungslosigkeit kann der Bedrohung der Schöpfung künstlerisch und - im Sinne einer höheren (ästhetischen) Logik - auch argumentativ begegnet werden. Wiedergegeben werden alle Bildserien zum «Sonnengesang», die eigens für das Symposion geschaffen wurden, wie auch der Gesamtzyklus des Càntic del Sol von Joan Miró.

In a passionate style , encyclical letter laudato si' of the holy father Francis on care for our common home expands Catholic teaching on mankind's responsibility to care for God's creation, and protect and care for the most vulnerable, issuing a call to action for both individuals and governments to tackle the planet's ecological plight. Francis warned that the world faces "the unprecedented destruction of ecosystems, with serious consequence for all of us," and reiterated the scientific community's view that climate change is a man-made phenomenon that needs to be addressed without delay.Midway through Laudato si', we find this question: what kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up? The Holy Father continues, "This question does not have to do with the environment alone and in isolation; the issue cannot be approached piecemeal." This leads us to ask ourselves about the meaning of existence and its values that are the basis of social life: "What is the purpose of our life in this world? Why are we here? What is the goal of our work and all our efforts? What need does the earth have of us?" "If we do not ask these basic questions" - says the Pope - "it is no longer enough, then, simply to state that we should be concerned for future generations"

All Catholics must accept Catholic social teaching with religious submission of mind and will; Laudato Si' summarises Catholic social teaching where environmental and related issues are concerned; Laudato Si' applies Catholic social teaching to the current state of the environment as perceived by Pope Francis; The Pope's description of the state of the environment is open to debate; On climate change the Pope opts for and heavily promotes the "consensus" account of the science without referenced justification and does not refer to any other view; The Catholic Church lacks the competence to resolve continuing scientific debates; The debate over anthropogenic global warming is far from complete; Laudato Si', Pope Francis' Encyclical Letter On the Care of Our Common Home, repeatedly calls for a "forthright and honest debate" (nn. 16, 61, 135, 138, 188); The present author takes no "side" in the debate about climate change and wants the debate to continue, but in a context which provides for a much fairer hearing to be given to all sides to that debate; This book as a part of the Living Ethics Series is intended as a contribution to that "forthright and honest debate" on environmental issues generally for which the Pope calls.

Catholic Education in the Light of Vatican II and Laudato Si'

Publisher: Veritas

In this timely and considered paper, Dermot A. Lane examines the subject of contemporary Catholic education in the light of two important theological publications: the Decree on Christian Education (1965), issued during Vatican II, and Laudato Si': On Care For Our Common Home, Pope Franci's recent encyclical lamenting the impact of unchecked capitalism on our earthly home. Divided into four parts, this paper outlines some of the major theological shifts that have taken place in the last fifty years, and examines the implications of those changes to our understanding of education today. The book begins by considering the most salient features of Vatican II in terms of Catholic education, before exploring the work of philosopher Charles Taylor and the education ramifications of Laudato Si'. In the concluding section the author examines how, when viewed through the prism a 'new anthropology', our understanding of Catholic education is both refreshed and illuminated. Book jacket.

On June 18, 2015, Pope Francis addressed the world about the fate of the planet, focusing especially on the threat of climate disaster. He called for a worldview that would emphasize the interconnectedness of things and what he called an "integral ecology." In Claremont, CA, earlier the same month, a conference called "Seizing an Alternative," keynoted by Bill McKibben, also focused attention on climate change and called for a new worldview that would reflect the interconnectedness of all things, or an "ecological civilization." The conference leaders saw that their aims and hopes now had a global leader. The goals of an integral ecology and an ecological civilization are the same. The task now for those who care about the fate of the world is to give whatever support they can to Pope Francis. As a first step, more than 60 persons involved in that conference answered the pope's call for dialogue and wrote responses to the pope's encyclical letter, Laudato si'. This book is a collection of those essays, written by people representing a diversity of faith traditions and cultures and many fields of activity and inquiry. They offer support, constructive criticism, and proposals for implementing the pope's ideas. To engage a larger public, it is important to engage the encyclical seriously, by widening and deepening the discussion. This book is offered in the hopes of facilitating that conversation.
