LETTER
“LAUDATO SI”
OF THE HOLY
FATHER POPE
FRANCIS
ON CARE FOR
OUR HOME
POPE FRANCIS’S 2ND ENCYCLICAL “LAUDATO SI”
2
"Laudato Si" is the second encyclical of Pope Francis, released on May
24, 2015. Its title comes from the opening words of the encyclical in Latin,
which mean "Praise Be to You." The document focuses on the theme of
care for our common home, urging humanity to take action to address
environmental degradation, climate change, and social inequality. Pope
Francis calls for an integral ecology that considers the
interconnectedness of environmental, social, economic, and spiritual
dimensions.
“LAUDATO SI, MI SIGNORE”
PRAISE BE TO YOU, MY
LORD
THE SISTER NOW CRIES OUT TO US
BECAUSE OF THE HARM WE HAVE
INFLICTED ON HER BY OUR
IRRESPONSIBLE USE AND ABUSE OF THE
GOODS W/ WHICH GOD HAS ENDOWED
HER.
We have come to see ourselves as her lords and
masters, entitled to plunder her at will. The violence
present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also
reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the
soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life.
This is the earth herself, burdened and laid waste, is
among the most abandoned and maltreated of our
poor; “she groans in travail”. We have forgotten that
we ourselves are the dust of the earth; our very
bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe he
air and we receive life and refreshment from her
waters. (Insert YouTube video: “Colors of the Wind”)
• In 1971, eight years after Pacem in Terris, Blessed Pope Paul VI, referred to the ecological
concern as a “tragic consequence” of unchecked human activity: “Due to an ill-considered
exploitation of nature, humanity runs the risk of destroying it and becoming in turn a victim of this
degradation”. He spoke in similar terms to the Food and Agriculture organization of the UN about
the potential for an ecological catastrophe under the effective explosion of industrial civilization”,
and stressed the “urgent the need for a radical change in the conduct of humanity”, inasmuch as
“the most extraordinary scientific advances, the most amazing technical abilities, the most
astonishing economic growth, unless they are accompanied by authentic social and moral
progress, will definitely turn against man.”
• (Insert YouTube Video: “Masdan ang Kapaligiran” and Visayan “Diri sa Lasang” Environmental
song)
5
• In "Laudato Si," Pope Francis emphasizes the urgent
need for global cooperation and individual responsibility
to protect the Earth and its inhabitants, particularly the
poor and vulnerable who are disproportionately affected
by environmental degradation. He criticizes
consumerism, the throwaway culture, and the reckless
exploitation of natural resources, calling for a shift
towards sustainable development and lifestyles.
•
6
CONCLUSION
• The encyclical has had a significant impact, both
within and outside the Catholic Church, sparking
discussions and actions on environmental stewardship
and social justice. It has been praised for its moral
leadership on environmental issues and its call for
dialogue and cooperation among people of different
faiths and backgrounds to address the ecological crisis
facing the planet.
