On Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si)
by Pope Francis (Author), United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

Format: Paperback

This encyclical is both poetic and provocative in the best sense. Pope Francis reminds us that we cannot take one another for granted, we cannot leave this planet in ruins, and we cannot expect the poor to bear the worst burdens of environmental deterioration. This is a coherent, deeply thoughtful -- and deeply prayerful -- text that offers hope and caution in equal doses. May God give us the strength and the humility to answer this challenge.
