Join EarthBeat on an exploration of Laudato Si' through a social, political and spiritual lens. Three times a week, we’ll dive into a new section of the papal document, leading readers through an informal study of the call to care for our common home, five years on.
Digging Into Laudato Si': Continuing with chapter 2, Pope Francis says in section 3: “A fragile world, entrusted by God to human care, challenges us to devise intelligent ways of directing, developing and limiting our power” (78).

Digging Into Laudato Si': God designed a world in which nature takes care of us, and God intended for us to care for it in return. Consider the politicans you vote for and the companies you support with your wallet.
Digging Into Laudato Si': Pope Francis doesn't hold back in his section on the loss of biodiversity. Perhaps the simplest thing we can do comes down to Francis’s ask at the end of this section: to cherish all creatures with love and respect.
