Overview

Human beings and nature must not be at the service of money . . . .

That economy destroys Mother Earth.  -Pope Francis

Pope Franciss historic encyclical Laudato Sia was not merely the first encyclical to address ecology and care for creation; it was the manifesto for a new humanism, an outline of the values and principles allowing us to live together in our common home. Drawing not only on that encyclical but on Pope Franciss extensive writings, speeches, and homilies, Care for Creation lays out his comprehensive vision of integral ecology.

As Francis argues, concern for the earth is more than an ethical challenge it calls for a profound conversion of values that involves a new understanding of our relation to Gods Creation, both the Earth and its creatures, as well as our fellow human beings.

The Degradation of Our Common Home

An Economy That Kills

The Globalization of Indifference
