LaudatoSi-Main  
Laudato Si' is Pope Francis’ Encyclical on the environment or more formally – On Care for Our Common Home. Laudato Si means “Praise
 
 be to you” which is the first line of a canticle of St. Francis of Assisi, his namesake, that praises God with all of his creation. 
Indeed, the spiritual tradition of “creation care” has run through our Roman Catholic tradition from its earliest years and begins with the Book of Genesis. The Old Testament is filled with beautiful images of nature and the revelation of God in nature.
