On November 14, the Laudato Si’ Action Platform was officially launched by the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, and their site is now open for enrolment. This much anticipated global project will help Catholic communities create environmental action plans and track their progress to help move our world in the direction of the Laudato Si’ goals.
Fratelli tutti (All Brothers) is the third encyclical of Pope Francis, subtitled “on fraternity and social friendship”. In the document, Francis states that the COVID-19 pandemic has proven the failure of the world to work together during this crisis. The document was signed on 3 October 2020, on the occasion of Pope Francis’s visit to the tomb of his namesake, Saint Francis of Assisi, and was published the following day, the saint’s feast day. This encyclical now has its own website.
