Yesterday we celebrated a new reason to hope! Pope Francis released “Laudato Si (Be Praised): On the Care of Our Common Home,” an encyclical on stewardship of the environment and human ecology. The Pope’s pastoral letter, the boldest environmental signal to date from the Roman Catholic Church, calls on all people of conscience to take up climate change as a moral imperative.
This is a tremendous moment for those of us who recognize that global warming is the moral issue of our time. Reverend Sally Bingham, President and founder of Interfaith Power and Light, spoke about the encyclical and what it means for the climate movement on the Diane Rehm show on NPR. Listen here.
