Encyclical letter Laudato si’ - Francis

Encyclical letter Laudato si’

Pope Francis www.vatican.va

6/18/2015 - Given in Rome, at Saint Peter's, on May 24, the Solemnity of Pentecost, in the year 2015, the third of my Pontificate.

"What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up? This question not only concerns the environment in isolation; the issue cannot be approached piecemeal. When we ask ourselves what kind of world we want to leave behind, we think in the first place of its general direction, its meaning and its values. Unless we struggle with these deeper issues, I do not believe that our concern for ecology will produce significant results.
We need to see that what is at stake is our own dignity.
The issue is one which dramatically affects us"
