Pope Francis has been surprising since he spoke out against capitalism, and he continues to impress by speaking out to give progressive opinions about the critical issues of our times. This year for Pentacost, he released this letter imploring his dioceses to, in short, enter the environmentalist movement. We believe his sentiment (regardless of the words we would use to describe it) is nondenominational.

Please read, practice, share, disseminate!

An Encyclical Letter on Care for Our Common Home

(The Holy Father, Pope Francis)

“More than fifty years ago, with the world teetering on the brink of nuclear crisis, Pope Saint John XXIII wrote an Encyclical which not only rejected war but offered a proposal for peace. He addressed his message Pacem in Terris to the entire “Catholic world” and indeed “to all men and women of good will”. Now, faced as we are with global environmental deterioration, I wish to address every person living on this planet . . . to enter into dialogue with all people about our common home.” 

Just goes to show, some pieces of history only become more relevent with time.
