Happy Birthday, Laudato si’

This month marks the first anniversary of the publication of Pope Francis’ Encyclical on Care for our Common Home, with its incipit taken from St. Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Creatures.

As the anniversary approaches (18 June) we ask the Franciscan family throughout the world to commit themselves anew to the lifestyle change that is necessary to move from thought to action and to take concrete measures to care for our common home.

The Global Catholic Climate Movement is calling for a Laudato Si’ week (12-19 June 2016) http://laudatosiweek.org/

The Interfranciscan Commission for Justice and Peace (Romans VI), had the studyguide published, which can be found on the web site in 8 languages.
