Pope Francis has called on “every person living on this planet” to take “decisive action, here and now” to address the world’s ecological crisis. The Laudato Si' appeal, ‘Care for our Common Home’, will run over the next seven years as an inclusive dialogue about how humans are shaping the future of our planet. Pope Francis calls for the Church and the wider world to acknowledge the urgency of our environmental challenges and to join him in embarking on a new path.

Following this call to action, representatives of the British Province of Carmelites met to discuss the new Laudato Si' Action Platform and to further develop their strategy for the Care of Creation. We pray for these representatives and look forward to hearing their plans for how Carmelites are implementing Pope Francis’ rallying appeal.
