Environment Catholic News Stories - Catholic Courier


Pope Francis highlighted the environment and care for creation as an issue of focus in his 2015 encyclical, Laudato Si’: on Care for Our Common Home. The encyclical’s title comes from a hymn of praise by St. Francis of Assisi that emphasizes being in harmony with God. The pope has said that lack of respect for human life and for the environment are both evidence of people claiming power over something that is not theirs to control.
