Pope Francis urges the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics and all people of good will to take urgent action against the injustice of climate change and the ecological crisis, to protect the poor and future generations. His encyclical letter Laudato Si’ is a compelling call to care for our common home, Earth, building on a long history of Catholic teaching. We are building a vibrant movement to respond to Pope Francis’ call.

This, however, does not absolve us of our responsibilities as stewards of creation. Let us not forget that it was for Noah’s sake that the world was not utterly destroyed. The implication of the covenant with Noah is that “all it takes is one good person to restore hope!” (LS 71)
