Care for the Common Home
To read the encyclical letter please click here.
“LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” –
“Praise be to you, my Lord”. In the words of this beautiful
canticle, Saint 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”
