+ Pope Francis

After huddling in Assisi for a few days of prayer and strategizing, some of the folks behind the Global Catholic Climate Movement made their way to Rome, and then straight into the Paul VI Auditorium at the Vatican for the pontiff's regular Wednesday general audience.
And then, well, you can watch for yourselves ...
More to come one next steps for GCCM and others as we embark into the uncharted territory of 2017, and beyond.
For now, see more on the GCCM gathering in Assisi here. While needs at home kept me in the USA, it's great to have such colleagues working together to help the us all live Laudato Si'.

About the Blog
Catholic Ecology posts my regular column in the Rhode Island Catholic, as well as scientific and theological commentary about the latest eco-news, both within and outside of the Catholic Church. What is contained herein is but one person's attempt to teach and defend the Church's teachings - ecological and otherwise. As such, I offer all contents of this blog for approval of the bishops of the Church. It is my hope that nothing herein will lead anyone astray from truth.
