Message for the Fifth Anniversary of Laudato Si

Join Redemptorist from around the world in celebrating Laudato Si’ Week beginning May 16 and ending on May 24th.

Five years ago, Pope Francis issued Laudato Si. That encyclical, on the environment, called for an ‘ecological conversion’, meaning a deep communion with all things that surround us. In that prophetic document, we have a blueprint for a sustainable future that is based on respect and love for this beautiful planet. The encyclical is offered to us as a timely reminder that we humans are part of the interconnected cosmic web of creation and we need to live in harmony with it.

Laudato Si was and is for Catholics and non-Catholics, domestically and globally to enter into an ecological dialogue and an immediate call to action. The moral imperative, of all Catholics, is to respond to this ecological crisis, one we have witnessed recently through bushfires following on from years of drought.
