Laudato Si’: Environmental Ethics and Bioethics
Last edited 25th June 2015

"In the last part of the encyclical, Pope Francis invites Christians and all people of good will to ecological conversion. While it is true that we are partly responsible for many wounds inflicted on the environment, it is also true that we can be the solution to these problems once there is conversion of heart. This change involves recognizing that ecology is first of all an ethical question and humanity cannot be dominated by utilitarianism, consumerism and technological solutions."

The Poem from Saint Francis that Inspired the Ecology Encyclical, “Laudato Si”
Last edited 17th June 2015

"That is how the name came into my heart: Francis of Assisi. For me, he is the man of poverty, the man of peace, the man who loves and protects creation; these days we do not have a very good relationship with creation, do we?" A name isn't the only thing that Pope Francis took from the famous saint. The title of his upcoming encyclical on ecology translates to "Be praised," words from Saint Francis of Assisi's famous poem "Canticle of the Creatures."
