Laudato Si' - with the subtitle On Care For Our Common House is an inspirational letter from Pope Francis, that calls us to examine our hearts, transform our social values and take action for global solidarity. The encyclical captures the interconnectedness of social, economic and environment justice in building and protecting Our Common Home.
It highlights the 'intimate relationship between the poor and the fragility of the planet'. Protecting the planet requires an integrated approach to combatting poverty, restoring dignity to the excluded, and at the same time protecting nature.
