On Love: Selected Writings
The Pope Emeritus has decided to make available this collection of his homilies, most previously unpublished, in which he addresses the theme, which from the beginning he has celebrated, pondered, and witnessed to more than any other: Love.
He beautifully states: Christianity is a journey; it is not a theory, a sum total of doctrine; Christianity is life, it is a vital impetus that carries us toward true life . . . Christianity is therefore the inversion of the normal direction of our existence. Human life, according to its natural tendency, is a journey toward death. But then, what is life? When can someone say: I have found life? Where do we find it? Love is life. Love is synthesis; death is dissolution. Someone who has found love can say: I have found life.

Theology and Ecology in Dialogue: The Wisdom of Laudato Si'
Builds bridges between theology and ecology. It challenges theology to re-imagine who we are, who the Spirit is, who Christ is, where creation is going, and what is the role of liturgy in society―all in the glare of the climate crisis.
Up to now climate change was left to scientists, politicians, and activists. It is now time for religion to enter the debate. Climate change is not just one more problem to be addressed; it is the challenge facing humanity in the 21st century. This text will be of interest to activists, policymakers, educators, priests, and theologians.
