Let’s pay attention to pope’s wise words
Pope Francis, in his encyclical “Laudato Si,” connected the dots between caring for creation, climate change and morality. He clearly accepts the best scientific research available today. While recognizing the existence of an urgent environmental crisis that disproportionately affects the poor and those in developing countries, he is hopeful that we can “move toward an ecological conversion.” Francis invites all people to change course through education, dialogue, debate and action.
It is time for each of us to accept the responsibility to care for our common home. To begin, I would suggest reading the encyclical.
