Pontificium Consilium de Justitia et Pace

ad iustitiam simul ac amorem Christi erga pauperes ubique fovendum (Gaudium et Spes, 90)

Why this site?

On this site you can find a selection of annotated resources available on the web to better understand, apply and communicate the Encyclical Laudato si’ of Pope Francis.

What you can find here

A huge number of responses quickly flooded the web after the release of Laudato si’ on 18 June 2015 - instant comments, reactions and introductory presentations of the Encyclical. It would not be possible to give even a partial summary of all that material here, much less collect all of it. Therefore, you will not find those types of communications here unless they fit - along with other resources - into specific and extensive special sections. Instead, we have focused on more in-depth materials that are useful for deeper study.

Of special interest are items that help open up new perspectives in the reading of Laudato si'. Such materials give examples of its implementation and transmission, tell about good practices that the Encyclical has catalyzed, and give an idea of how the document is being received within and outside of religious contexts.

  • Laudato Si', 40 ans de réflexion

Au fil des rencontres œcuméniques, des voyages des papes et de la mobilisation des chrétiens. 40 années qui ressemblèrent à une marche au désert pour certains, mais qui ont permis à la doctrine sociale de l'Église de s'enrichir d'une nouvelle dimension essentielle

What resources?

To present the material effectively, we have organized the materials according to four categories: 1. sites completely or largely dedicated to Laudato si’ 2. aids and guides with a primarily educational or pastoral purpose 3. short essays, articles and speeches that are worthy of careful study and/or open new perspectives 4. videos.
Materials in five languages – English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish – have been collected.

A final criterion concerns accessibility: On this site, you will find only resources that are easy to access and free of charge; therefore, we have not included articles or books that require payment or some form of subscription or registration for consulting them. Il sito è strutturato in cinque lingue: inglese, francese, italiano portoghese e spagnolo.

Un ultimo criterio riguarda l'accessibilità: in questo sito troverai solo risorse liberamente e gratuitamente accessibili; non abbiamo quindi incluso articoli o libri a pagamento o che comunque richiedono per la consultazione una qualche forma di abbonamento o registrazione.
