Overview

Pope Francis’ second encyclical, Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home, calls all Christians to a greater responsibility in stewardship of the planet. Criticizing the rampant consumerism and irresponsible development of the modern age, Francis says, “This encyclical is aimed at everyone. Let us pray that everyone can receive its message and grow in responsibility toward the common home that God has entrusted to us.”

From climate change to poverty, technology to biodiversity, Pope Francis calls attention to the “grave responsibilities” we face and encourages “an honest and open debate so that particular interests or ideologies will not prejudice the common good.”

Praise for the Print Edition

Instead of a narrow and focused contribution to the climate debate, it turns out to be nothing less than a sweeping, radical, and highly persuasive critique of how we inhabit this planet—an ecological critique, yes, but also a moral, social, economic, and spiritual commentary.

—Bill McKibben, The New York Review of Books

About Pope Francis

Pope Francis was born Jorge Bergoglio in 1936. A Jesuit, he was ordained to the priesthood in 1969 and served many different posts before becoming archbishop in his native Buenos Aires in 1998. He was appointed cardinal by John Paul II in 2001. He became the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church in 2013, following the retirement of Benedict XVI, and chose the papal name of Francis after St. Francis of Assisi.

Pope Francis is known for the simplicity and informality with which he conducts his leadership of the Church, and was named “Person of the Year” in 2013 by Time magazine. His life and teachings emphasize humility, love for the poor, and interfaith connection. He has written several books in Spanish, including On Heaven and Earth, which was translated into English.
