On May 31, 2020, the Interdicasterial Working Group of the Holy See on Integral Ecology published the document Journeying Towards Care for Our Common Home: Five Years After Laudato Si. The document stems from the desire of Pope Francis to implement the document On Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si) and to inspire individuals, groups, and organizations to take action.
The document itself is broken down into sections, each of which contains an introduction to a topic, followed by examples and action suggestions. Areas addressed include human life, family, nursery, primary, secondary, university, catechesis, and life-long communication. Other areas include food, water, energy, ecosystems, seas and oceans, finance, and health – just to name a few.
While you may find the document long, the sections are quite short and contain ideas that can be helpful for your personal use, in your work, at your parish, or in sharing with others.
We are being called to go beyond the call of On Care for Our Common Home (Laudato Si) to moving ourselves and the community forward into action. We hope you will find some of the sections informative and helpful.
