Laudato Si – Encyclical from Pope Francis

Pope Francis has launched an Encyclical entitled ‘Laudato Si’ – on care for our common home.

‘Praise be to you, my Lord’.  In the words of this beautiful canticle, St. Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us.  ‘Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs’.
