On June 18 the new encyclical from Pope Francis was released. Laudato Si which literally means “Be praised.” In this encyclical Pope Francis addresses the care of our common home “the Earth.” He talks about the risks we need to take to save our human race and our planet. One cannot separate ecology from economies, or economies from ethics, or ethics from politics. “Everything is connected,” Pope Francis writes at several points in the encyclical.
