The lyrics feature words sung in Latin, Italian, French, English, and Swahili. But the song from “Waka Waka” that celebrates Laudato Si’ has one unifying message: it’s time to come together and care for our common home.
During Laudato Si’ Week, the Holy Spirit united hundreds of thousands of Catholics in praying, learning, and honoring the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis’ encyclical on climate change and ecology. Catholics united creatively as well.
The Vatican’s Monsignor Bruno-Marie Duffé and European Union officials sounded loudly the need for a “just recovery” as they reflected on “Laudato Si’” for a third consecutive year.
In the midst of a global pandemic that has exposed the faultlines of injustice in our societies, Catholics united to pray and reflect on how we can build a more just and sustainable future.
Living Laudato Si’ Philippines hopes to inspire people to commit to action this Laudato Si’ Week with its “Laudato Si’ Manifesto.”
As major challenges for the global economy are predicted in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, a diverse group of faith institutions is putting the call for a just economic recovery into practice.
