About this title

Synopsis:

Laudato Si', the historic encyclical of Pope Francis on the environment, was issued in 2015. As the first encyclical devoted entirely to the environment and related social justice issues, it represented a watershed in the engagement of the church with such urgent challenges as climate change, environmental degradation, and the fate of the poor.

This volume joins the full text of Laudato Si' with reflections by Sean McDonagh, one of the foremost Catholic proponents of ecological awareness. Aside from reviewing the history of Catholic teaching and the environment, he elaborates on several of the specific themes in the encyclical -- climate change, biodiversity, water scarcity, the threats to the ocean, and the crisis of food. He concludes with prescriptions about what must be done to turn the vision of Pope Francis into a program of effective action. Each of us has a role to play. As Pope Francis observes, "All it takes is one good person to restore hope."

About the Author:

Sean McDonagh, SSC, an Irish Columban priest, is well known around the world as an eco-theologian who works to raise awareness of the connections between justice and peace issues, environmental sustainability, and faith. His books include Climate Change: The Challenge to All of Us, Greening the Christian Millennium, Care for the Earth, and Dying for Water.
