A “Paradigm Shift” from Pope Francis in Understanding the Crisis Affecting Our Common Home
Pope Francis’ landmark encyclical, Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home, offers a “paradigm shift” in our understanding of the contemporary ecological crisis. More than just an “environmental” problem, this crisis is an existential threat to the well-being of our common household, both human and nonhuman. In a holistic way, Laudato Si’ lays bare the physical, ethical, and spiritual dimensions of this crisis. Join us in a dialogue about how the Catholic Church now calls us to respond through an integral approach, recognizing that everything is interconnected.
The Rev. Dr. Joshtrom Isaac Kureethadam, SDB, is the coordinator of the “Ecology and Creation” sector at the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development; his most recent book is The Ten Green Commandments of Laudato Si’ (Liturgical Press, 2018).
