The Brigidine Congregation together with all Catholic communities around the world are invited to participate in Laudato Si’ Week 2022.
It marks the seventh anniversary of Pope Francis’ landmark encyclical on creation care and unite the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics to listen and respond to the cry of God’s creation.
These days offer an opportunity to rejoice in the progress made in bringing Laudato Si’ to life, and intensify our efforts through the Vatican’s new Laudato Si’ Action Platform, which is empowering Catholic institutions, communities, and families to fully implement Laudato Si’.
Cardinal Michael Czerny, SJ, interim Prefect of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, which sponsors Laudato Si’ Week, said:
“As the purchasing of fossil fuels funds wars and further destroys God’s creation, our Holy Father is calling on us not to despair but to unite, not to lament this destruction but to take urgent action together. Let us come together as one global Catholic family committed to peace and caring for God’s creation in Laudato Si’ Week 2022.”
How will you participate in Laudato Si Week this year?
