Live Laudato Si

Pope Francis’ encyclical on ecology and climate change, Laudato Si’, is a profound invitation to everyone on the planet to care for our common home. One year on, we thank Pope Francis for his call to protect the gift of God’s creation. Now, it’s time to truly live Laudato Si’.

Putting the encyclical into action can be simple. We must shift away from fossil fuels and embrace renewable sources of energy. We can consume less. Waste less by introducing energy conservation and efficiency measures. From light bulbs and recycling to putting up solar panels and putting down our car keys, let’s share our stories with others to inspire our whole Catholic family to take good care of creation for future generations. Everyone can live Laudato Si. Let’s live simply – together.
