Laudato si is the first line of a hymn written by St Francis in praise of God’s creation and quoted by Pope Francis to introduce a letter written to the world to warn of the damage that humanity is inflicted on our common home, planet earth. The letter has been praised by many both within and outside Christianity. From Wednesday 5th October we shall begin a study of this important document.
Never before was a Papal letter more enthusiastically received by other Christian Churches, other religions, politicians, scientists, believers and non-believers alike as Pope Francis’ letter on creation, “Laudato si” two years ago. Though it is a challenging read at 189 pages it is clearly written and has a message that we should all try to absorb. So, over eight meetings, held twice a month during October, November, January and February, we shall travel through the document, as we did with Evangelii Gaudium, starting Wednesday evening 5th October in the Parish Centre, and the next meeting on 19th October. Tea or Coffee will be served from 7.15pm, meetings will start at 7.30 and end at 8.30pm while those who wish to continue a while longer are welcome to do so. Do come along. Fr John
