Fr. Nathaniel Haslam will mine the richness, caution and challenge in Pope Francis’ recent encyclical. Derived from the Greek word for “circle”, an encyclical is among the Church’s most authoritative teaching documents. But our Pope has set his sights far beyond the circle of the Church. This encyclical, he states, is addressed to “every person living on this planet.” “Laudato Si” is the first encyclical to focus primarily on creation care and the Pope also cautions against the “worshipping of earthly powers,” noting that humans have usurped the role of God, imposing their own laws and interests on reality with little thought to the long-term consequences.
