Laudato Si': a special anniversary year

The Vatican's JPIC office is inviting Catholic communities across the world to join a grassroots movement to gradually work toward "total sustainability" in the coming decade, a path that would include carbon neutrality, simpler lifestyles and divestment from fossil fuels.

The initiative was revealed May 16 by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development as part of a "special anniversary year" planned for Pope Francis' 2015 social encyclical, "Laudato Si', on Care for Our Common Home."

The news came on the first day of Laudato Si' Week, a Vatican-sponsored event running through May 24, the encyclical anniversary date. Now the week will kick off a full calendar of events through May 24, 2021.

Here a good resource to actively participate in Laudato Si´s Encyclical of Pope Francis. Listen, pray, reflect and share with family and community this material which is perfect to overcome this time of quarantine.

The series LAUDATO SI is a radio adaptation of the central idea that runs through Pope Francis' encyclical: climate change is ruining Mother Earth and its terrible consequences harm all living beings, especially men and women impoverished by a system that is no longer tolerable.
