As ‘Laudato Si Year’ Begins, Pope Encourages Everyone to Protect the Earth and the Poor

via Vatican News:

After praying the Regina Coeli on Sunday, Pope Francis recalled the 5th anniversary of his encyclical “Laudato si’: On the Care for our Common Home.”

He said the document sought to “call attention to the cry of the Earth and of the poor.”

The Pope invited everyone to take part in the Laudato si’ Year, which is promoted by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development and runs from 24 May 2020 until 24 May 2021.

“I invite all people of goodwill to take part, to care for our common home and our most vulnerable brothers and sisters.”
