What makes Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Sí so unique is how deeply it connects the cries of the poor with the cries of Earth.

Thanks to the intellectual matrix in Latin America and other formative experiences, his ministry to the poor whose suffering was being compounded by water scarcity, deforestation, food insecurity , and air pollution, and the narratives being told by his academic and pastoral peers across the globe, Pope Francis recognized the urgency of addressing the Earth’s deterioration and an aspect of Catholic social teaching that had not been articulated fully enough: care of creation.

This interactive text helps readers answer the above question by exposing some of the problems we are facing, engaging with the theology Laudato Sí, and offering a way for people of faith to move from theory to a practical and faithful commitment to creation.
