Vatican City, Jun 18, 2020 / 08:00 am
With a new 200-page document, the Vatican is encouraging Catholics to put their faith into action to promote integral ecology and care of creation, following the inspiration of Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato si'.
The introduction of On the Journey for Care of the Common Home says "the intention is to offer an orientation to the action of Catholics (but not only) in the secular dimension and to ask every Christian to examine their own behavior, also in everyday life…"
The document was presented June 18 in Italian. The booklet will be available in other languages in the near future.
The call to action was written in view of what Pope Francis wrote in Laudato si': "a healthy relationship with creation as a dimension of the integral conversion of the person."
