Pope Francis has written an ‘encyclical’ or letter to everyone asking us to ‘Care for Our Common Home’.
In the encyclical Pope Francis explained the sacredness of everything in creation and spelled out why each one of us has a responsibility to respect, cherish and safeguard all the earth. The Holy Father says, “St Francis … invites us to see Nature as a magnificent book in which God speaks to us and grants us a glimpse of his infinite beauty and goodness.” The encyclical is addressed to all people, not just Catholics or Christians and has been used by faith leaders and politicians to change the political agenda in favour of the poor. Now more than ever this is needed. Our celebration is part of a global interfaith celebration
