Our Common Home
Working together to create a climate of justice
“…hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.”
– Pope Francis, Laudato Si
Calling for climate justice
Pope Francis’ encyclical letter on human ecology, Laudato Si’ (“Praise be to you”) – On the Care of Our Common Home, is the Church’s most profound clarion call yet for us all to be protectors of creation and the poor.
The Encyclical calls for a new global solidarity, where all individuals, communities and governments have an essential part to play. Out of love for our sisters and brothers worldwide, and for the love of God’s creation, we are called to respond.
Inspired by Pope Francis’ lead, Our Common Home is a new campaign in our climate justice advocacy, to build support for strong climate action in Australia.
