‘Laudato Sii’ (Praised Be) Will Reportedly be the Title of Pope Francis’ Upcoming Encyclical

via NCR:

Pope Francis’ highly anticipated encyclical letter on environmental issues is reportedly to be given the title ‘Laudato Sii,’ a quotation from a popular prayer of St. Francis of Assisi praising God for the creation of the different creatures and aspects of the Earth.

Translated in English either as “Be Praised” or “Praised Be,” the title of the letter was first reported on Twitter mid Saturday by Spanish language journalist Mercedes De La Torre….

De La Torre also said in a brief conversation that the encyclical is to be given an Italian subtitle: “Sulla cura della casa comune” (On the care of the common home).
