Pray with Pope Francis for Our Environment! Laudato Si is the newest encyclical from Pope Francis. It is centered on the environment, the wonders of creation, and the role of mankind. Having ‘dominion over the earth’ means respectful responsibility for natural and human resources, using a wide and deep understanding of justice in our approach to these resources, and a call to action to respond to problems with energy and creativity in a manner that brings long standing Catholic teachings to life. Read Laudato Si and think about how profound change can start with you. Pope Francis has two prayers at the end of his writings. Pick up a prayer at the Stewardship display in the atrium, it’s a good first step.
