With the June 2015 publication of the papal encyclical “Laudato Si’,” Pope Francis made our common home—the earth—a top priority for world Catholicism. To help lay individuals understand the meaning of the encyclical and further the pope’s mission to address climate change and promote sustainability, the Rev.
