Praise Be to You
Drawing its name from St. Francis' Canticle of the Creatures, Laudato Si reminds us that earth is our common home and that we must care for it. Pope Francis calls the entire world to take action to embrace what he called “ecological conversion.”
Pope Francis' encyclical comes alive and is more accessible with this reading guide. This guide offers a summary of every article in Pope Francis’ groundbreaking encyclical and a small group reflection process to help everyone read and understand it. The article numbers in the original are retained for ease in moving between the guide and the actual encyclical.
The six small group sessions outlined here include group reading, discussion, prayer and action suggestions (for communal or personal use) making it ideal for youth ministry, confirmation programs, parish leaders, small communities, clergy groups, adult formation, the RCIA or families.
