Laudato Si’ Reflections.
This section offers the reflection of different authors on the encyclical Laudato Si’. With different perspectives, resulting from the context, vocation, profession, study or work of each author. The articles that we offer enrich the reflection from different perspectives: theological, philosophical, biblical, anthropological, economic, among others.
We hope that they will be useful for a personal and community deepening of the themes proposed by the authors in the light of the encyclical Laudato Si’.
“Given the complexity of the ecological crisis and its multiple causes, we need to realize that the solutions will not emerge from just one way of interpreting and transforming reality. Respect must also be shown for the various cultural riches of different peoples, their art and poetry, their interior life and spirituality. If we are truly concerned to develop an ecology capable of remedying the damage we have done, no branch of the sciences and no form of wisdom can be left out, and that includes religion and the language particular to it. The Catholic Church is open to dialogue with philosophical thought; this has enabled her to produce various syntheses between faith and reason. The development of the Church’s social teaching represents such a synthesis with regard to social issues; this teaching is called to be enriched by taking up new challenges.”
(Pope Francis, LS. 63)
