God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensées of a Catholic priest

Laudato Si

Seldom was an encyclical so much anticipated and then so much welcomed by almost all quarters of society with the exception of those denying global warming as a matter of principal. Having read the document there is indeed a unique beauty and meaning in how Pope Francis combined and interlinked ecology, poverty and economy as well as social justice. It feels like an updated “Pacem in Terris” written in 1963 by the good Pope Johannes XXIII: Here is someone catching at the right moment the sentiments and worries of all people of good will living in the global village.
A document, the Catholic Church can be proud to have produced and worth reading bit by bit, even if one doesn’t agree with faith as such or with the Catholic Church as an institution.

Much is already written about it – form your own opinion by reading the document yourself.
