“Laudato Si’, mi’ Signore” means “Praise be to you, my Lord” and is taken from a canticle by Saint Francis of Assisi which reminds us earth like a sister. “Our Sister, Mother Earth” is now crying out because of the way we humans have harmed her.#A Guide to Laudato Si   

Nothing in this world is indifferent to us. Previous popes have also raised concerns about environmental degradation.This encyclical is addressed to “every person living on this planet” with the hope of entering “into dialogue with all people about our common home.”

In many ways, the structure and format of the document is very straightforward and logical. It consists of six chapters: #Summary of Laudato Si

CHAPTER ONE – WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR COMMON HOME
CHAPTER TWO – THE GOSPEL OF CREATION
CHAPTER THREE – THE HUMAN ROOTS OF THE ECOLOGICAL CRISIS
CHAPTER FOUR – INTEGRAL ECOLOGY
CHAPTER FIVE – LINES OF APPROACH AND ACTION
CHAPTER SIX – ECOLOGICAL EDUCATION AND SPIRITUALITY
