The encyclical has arrived and it’s a game changer! – Catholic Earthcare Australia

What a time for the Catholic community and for all of creation!

We are simply overjoyed by Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato si’. We feel an enormous sense of gratitude for the gift that Pope Francis has given us, and a renewed sense of hope and love to care for God’s Creation with the whole human family.

We were all moved by the profound words of Pope Francis, who calls on us all to care for our common home, which is like “a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us.”

I hope that you take the time to pause and reflect on the encyclical and find within it many treasures and challenges to ponder on the journey ahead.
