Caritas & Laudato Si'

On care for our common home

In June 2015, Pope Francis sent a letter to the whole of humanity about caring for each other and the world we live in.

The encyclical Laudato Si’, on care for our common home looks at our relationships with each other, the earth and with God and launches an urgent call to action to save these bonds.

Caritas Internationalis has set out a long-term strategic vision inspired by Laudato Si’ and Caritas organisations across the world have embraced the enciclical to inspire their work.
