On the care of our common home

Pope Francis announced that the publication of his encyclical – “Laudato Sii: on the care of our common home” – will take place this Thursday, 18 June.

The Pope invited all who were with him in St Peter’s Square last Sunday to accompany the event “with renewed attention to situations of environmental degradation, but also of recovery, in your territories. This encyclical is addressed to all: let us pray that all receive its message and grow in responsibility towards the common home that God has entrusted to us all”.
