“In Laudato Si, Pope Francis shows how we need to listen, observe and engage everything that makes up our common home, not only with the intelligence of the market, profit, and gains; but also with the intelligence of the heart, solidarity, compassion, and care, especially towards the weak and poor.” —Cardinal Peter K.A. Turks, president, Vatican Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace
“It is impossible to overstate the power of the pope’s words on creation and its care, in the landmark Laudato Si and elsewhere. As this volume illustrates, he has put the full power of his papacy behind the most crucial challenge we’ve ever faced: slowing the ongoing and horrific overheating of the planet we were given to care for.” —Bill McKibben, author, environmentalist, founder 350.org
“These words, this message, this prophetic call from Pope Francis, are deeply inspiring and worth our reflection and serious consideration. I want to hear this message fully and take it to heart, and I urge others to do so, too, that we might all do what we can to help end environmental destruction and create a more nonviolent world.” —Rev. John Dear, author, activist, Nobel Peace Prize nominee, cofounder CampaignNonviolence.org
The planet is in peril, the pope is telling us, along with the well being of the poor who depend on the earth’s natural resources. He chastises world leaders and challenges ordinary people, reminding us that our foolish actions and careless decisions are placing lives at risk.
Pope Francis decries our current assaults on the natural environment and warns of the consequences of climate change. Still, his message is always ultimately one of hope.
In Caring for Creation, Pope Francis’s words reveal that he believes we can move towards a new kind of conversion—a higher level of consciousness, action, and advocacy that will spark “a bold cultural revolution.
