Later this summer, Pope Francis will release his highly anticipated encyclical on the environment and human ecology.
In preparation of the document, NCR recently reviewed previous homilies, speeches and messages on environmental topics from Francis since his papacy began March 13, 2013. From more than 30,000 words and nearly 100 texts, we compiled his most noteworthy quotes and presented them in a full-page graphic in the Our Environment special section of the April 10-23, 2015, print edition.
The graphic from the paper is now available for purchase as a 13-by-19 inch poster. You can order the poster -- $5 each, though prices decrease if ordered in quantities of 10 or more -- by contacting Orlena Bolder at 800-444-8910, ext. 2202 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also revisit Francis’ eco-quotes here at NCR’s Eco Catholic blog, where extended versions of the quotes featured on the poster, as well as additional statements, will appear online until the encyclical publishes, expected in June or July. You can find the Pope’s Eco Quotes series by searching the Eco Catholic blog or through the “Francis: The Environment Encyclical” series tag.
