Natural Resources, Land, and Armed Conflict
Summary of Pope Francis’s 2015 encyclical, Laudato Si’.
The encyclical letter of the Holy Father on the ecology,“Laudato si’, mi Signore,” — “Praise be to you, my Lord” is a lectio divina, a meditation and a defense for the protection of our Sister, Mother Earth, with whom we share our life, a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. “The irresponsible use as well as the abuse of the goods that God has put in it” (n.1).
