On Care for our Common Home - Chapter Five

August 07, 2016

This month we explore this challenge through “Laudato Si” Chapter Five, Lines of Approach and Action, and the words of Fr Julian...

Pope Francis, in his letter “Laudato Si,” (2015) sets St Francis of Assisi before us as a guide as he asks us to consider what is happening on our common home, the earth. (LS17) 

He describes St Francis as a man of faith (who) saw creation as a window through which he also saw God (LS12) St Francis approached all of creation and all people with awe and wonder. (LS11)

Fr Julian Tenison Woods could also be described as man of faith who saw God in all creation.  All created things give us glimpses of the beauty of the infinitely beautiful Creator. (1881)

The Pope challenges us to a dialogue that imagines a new and more sustainable lifestyle for us all (LS16)

This month we explore this challenge through “Laudato Si” Chapter 5, Lines of Approach and Action, and the words of Fr Julian.
