The Laudato Si’ Revolution is a global campaign whose aim is to encourage and promote integral ecological conversion, i.e. environmental, economic and social ecology. The human and social dimensions are at the heart of our campaign, as we want the values of social and environmental justice, care and respect for creation and intergenerational solidarity to be part of our daily lives.
We make this website available with information, formation topics, examples of good practices, liturgical aids and the constant invitation to join the great Laudato Si’ Revolution, through concrete and straightforward initiatives at the local level: the fraternity, the parish, the school, the home, the museum, the university, the missionary centre, etc.
As we mark five years since the publication of the Encyclical Laudato Si’, we invite you to share your experiences on the map of initiatives so that we may all be encouraged. It is not a question of starting from scratch, but of being able, as a Franciscan family, to share what we have been putting into practice by way of spirituality since the Encyclical Laudato Si’.
“I do not want to write this Encyclical without turning to that attractive and compelling figure, whose name I took as my guide and inspiration when I was elected Bishop of Rome. I believe that Saint Francis is the example par excellence of care for the vulnerable and of an integral ecology lived out joyfully and authentically. He is the patron saint of all who study and work in the area of ecology, and he is also much loved by non-Christians. He was particularly concerned for God’s creation and for the poor and outcast. He loved, and was deeply loved for his joy, his generous self-giving, his openheartedness. He was a mystic and a pilgrim who lived in simplicity and in wonderful harmony with God, with others, with nature and with himself. He shows us just how inseparable the bond is between concern for nature, justice for the poor, commitment to society, and interior peace.”
(Pope Francis, LS. 10)
