About Laudato Si'
Laudato Si' is the name of Pope Francis' 2015 encyclical letter on care for our common home. The phrase means "praise be", and is taken from a prayer of St Francis of Assisi. Pope Francis calls on all people to care for all of creation, including the earth's diverse habitats, its many species, and for each other.

He inaugurated the "Laudato Si' Action Platform, a seven-year program of ecological conversion for the entire Catholic Church developed by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development.
