Laudate Deum – A Renewed Call to Care for our Common Home

Pope Francis released his anticipated follow up to Laudato Si’  this week.  In the apostolic exhortation, Laudate Deum, Pope Francis calls on all Catholics and people of good will to both recognize and work to solve the climate crisis.

                      “The world sings of an infinite Love:  how can we fail to care for it?”      -Pope Francis, Laudate Deum no. 65

Pope Francis draws attention to the urgency of this crisis and our need to care for the poor and vulnerable communities which are affected.  He calls all of us to take individual actions to limit the impact of our daily lives on the planet, and asks us to hold accountable industry and political leaders in making the kind of systemic changes needed.  How will you get involved to pray, advocate, and act for our common home?
