Pope Francis made headlines when he penned his new encyclical, Laudato Si, and called on the worlds people to protect Gods creation. In this booklet, author Michael Wright identifies 10 key themes from the popular encyclical, explaining what they mean for everyday Catholics.
A follow-up to the successful 10 Things Pope Francis Wants You to Know, this booklet provides clear explanations for readers who want to follow Pope Francis teachings.
In my ten years committed to sharing Catholic teaching on the environment, 2015 will forever be a watershed moment with the release of Pope Francis On Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si). The profound and detailed encyclical is superbly summarized by Michael Wright. Michaels book, 10 Things Pope Francis Wants You to Know About the Environment, draws deeply from Laudato Si, outlining the major themes of the book, and making those themes accessible to all. The underlying spiritual calling that is at the heart of Laudato Si is beautifully synthesized especially in chapters 2, 3, and 6. But each chapter is worthy of full attention. The book could easily serve as a study guide for small groups wanting to explore Pope Francis teaching on the environment.
This is an excellent resource for parishes eager to make Pope Francis encyclical Laudato Si more accessible to diverse groups of Catholics and empower them to take action. Ill certainly be using this resource at my parish.
These 10 Things books are excellent resources for adult education, introducing key themes of the Popes teachings. Their pocket-size format makes them invitinggood for catechists and a great resource for any type of adult education in the parish, including small faith-study groups and interfaith efforts. Some readers will be motivated to go further, to read the original documents, like Laudato Si, homilies, and discourses that each book explains.
