Laudato Si

Laudato Si week – ‘Responding to the Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor’

The week beginning Sunday 19 May 2024 has been set aside by Pope Francis to reflect on ‘Care for Creation’ with the theme ‘Seeds of Hope’.  It is an opportune time to remind ourselves of the messages contained within the encyclical Laudato Si’ – here is one A/B/C selection ..

A St Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life…(L.Si’ para 1)


B … other living Beings have a value of their own in God’s eyes: ‘by their mere existence they Bless him and give him glory. (L.Si’ para 69)


C Society as a whole and the state in particular are obliged to defend and promote the Common good. (L.Si’ para 157)
