Study Guide for Laudato Si’: The Interfranciscan Commission for Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation August 2015
It is with great pleasure that we offer this Study Guide for Laudato Si’. As preparations were underway for publication of the encyclical, the Conference of the Franciscan Family (CFF) contacted
us, the Interfranciscan Commission for Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation (Romans VI), and requested that we anticipate the arrival of the papal letter. In response, we proposed creation of a Study Guide meant to promote reading and study of the encyclical. The CFF accepted our proposal.

More than 125 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, a level of suffering not seen since World War II. The social problems are wide and deep, from war and human trafficking to the gross inequality between the wealthy 1% and the poorest 3 billion of the population. Included in the summit's Agenda for Humanity are climate and natural disasters. Indeed, 1 year ago, Pope Francis emphasized, in the encyclical Laudato Si, that complex crises have both social and environmental dimensions.

INTERVIEW Leonardo Boff Liberation Ecology, August 2016

Theology can play a central role in defining the moral fiber of a society, including its commitment to poverty alleviation and stewardship of Earth.The encyclical Laudato Si´ is the fruit of the theological ecology that developed in recent years in Latin America. The Pope adopted the method of “see, judge, act, and celebrate” and used it to organize the encyclical. Allen White, Senior Fellow at Tellus Institute, talks with Leonardo Boff, a founder of liberation theology, about the origins of the movement and the vital connections between ecology and social justice.
