The Pope's Encyclical was published on May 25th, 2015 and was welcomed by many politicians worldwide as well as the UN secretary general, the World Bank president and the heads of the UN climate talks and the UN environment programme.
In its 100 pages, the Holy Father speaks of the degradation of Earth, our common home, and how this phenomenon is affecting our lives and those of the future inhabitants of our precious planet. He draws particular attention to an important question: what kind of home do we want to leave to our future generations?
Even if the environment is the focal theme of his letter, Pope Francis touches upon many other important and controversial topics like abortion, genetic manipulation and the limits of technology.
An insightful and pervasive read especially for the younger generations. Read it for yourself at:
