Pope Francis second encyclical Laudato Si' (Praise Be to You) provides a biting critique of consumerism and global poverty with a plea for swift action to combat environmental degradation, climate change and inequality.

“The Earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth,” writes the pontiff.

Yet more than simply an ecological encyclical, Pope Francis has given the Church and the world a document that addresses the full range of Catholic social teaching on economics, politics, culture, employment, technology, migration, poverty, peace, architecture, urban planning, education, human rights and the environment.

At heart Laudato Si, addressed to ‘every person on the planet’, is a call for a new way of looking at things, a ‘bold cultural revolution’ (No.3, 114), and an insight into the Pope’s hope and vision for a better world.

This encyclical is an urgent, accessible call to action, making a case that all everything interconnected, and offering solutions to the grave environmental crises the earth – our common home - faces.

What sort of world do you want to leave for future generations?
