Laudato Si, On Care for Our Common Home, is hailed as Pope Francis’s statement on the environment and climate change. It is an appeal for an eco-spirituality integrating the moral and ethical, political and economic, social and technological aspects of our relationships with all life: with humanity, with the created world and with God. Over three Sundays in May, St. Peter’s adult formation program will examine Laudato Si. On May 22nd, we will discuss how Laudato Si’ can guide us toward enlightened and sustainable attitudes and actions individually, as a parish and within our communities.
Martin McElroy has prepared this program, including a condensation of the text and additional references drawn from presentations at Daylesford Abbey, Villanova Campus Ministry, PA Interfaith Light and general media. His summary can be found at http://www.stpetersgv.org/summary-of-the-laudato-si-encyclical/
— we encourage you to look at it before Sunday.
