The New Encyclical: LAUDATO SI'

I love the new Encyclical. In one stroke Our Holy Father Pope Francis takes back the stewardship of creation for the Church. The stewardship of Creation is not a leftist cause to be used as a means of forcing population control in the world. Pope Francis puts it in the perspective of Sacred Scripture and the writings of the Popes and the saints. The preservation of Creation is OUR cause, and is linked to the Franciscan tradition, which emphasizes how the beauty of creation flows through the mystery of the Immaculate Conception. It also reminds me of those earthly gifts: nature and health and gardens and how the beauty of nature feeds the soul. Share
