      Pope Francis Latin Franciscus Italian Francesco Spanish Francisco born Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 17 December 1936 is the 266th and current Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, a title he holds ex officio as Bishop of Rome, and Sovereign of the Vatican City He chose Francis as his papal name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi Francis is the first Jesuit pope, the first from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere and the first non European pope since the Syrian Gregory III, who died in 741.Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Bergoglio worked briefly as a chemical technologist and nightclub bouncer before beginning seminary studies He was ordained a Catholic priest in 1969 and from 1973 to 1979 was Argentina s provincial superior of the Society of Jesus He was accused of handing two priests to the National Reorganization Process during the Dirty War, but the lawsuit was ultimately dismissed He became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998 and was created a cardinal in 2001 by Pope John Paul II He led the Argentine Church during the December 2001 riots in Argentina, and the administrations of N stor Kirchner and Cristina Fern ndez de Kirchner considered him a political rival Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013, a papal conclave elected Bergoglio as his successor on 13 March.Throughout his public life, Pope Francis has been noted for his humility, emphasis on God s mercy, concern for the poor, and commitment to interfaith dialogue He is credited with having a humble, less formal approach to the papacy than his predecessors, for instance choosing to reside in the Domus Sanctae Marthae guesthouse rather than in the papal apartments of the Apostolic Palace used by his predecessors In addition, due to both his Jesuit and Ignatian aesthetic, he is known for favoring simpler vestments void of ornamentation, including refusing the traditional papal mozzetta cape upon his election, choosing silver instead of gold for his piscatory ring, and keeping the same pectoral cross he had as Cardinal He maintains that the church should be open and welcoming He does not support unbridled capitalism, Marxism, or Marxist versions of liberation theology Francis maintains the traditional views of the church regarding abortion, euthanasia, contraception, homosexuality, ordination of women, and priestly celibacy He opposes consumerism, irresponsible development, and supports taking action on climate change, a focus of his papacy with the promulgation of Laudato si In international diplomacy, he helped to restore full diplomatic relations between the U.S and Cuba.

    1. You don t have to be Catholic to appreciate this well written moral argument for why society cannot be in a state of existence distinct from and above the natural environment.


    2. Authentic human development has a moral character It presumes full respect for the human person, but it must also be concerned for the world around us w2tican content dam fran


    3. Public theology, in this work of Pope Francis, is overtly collaborative His footnotes are as likely to refer not only to Catholic tradition especially Francis and Bonaventure and to previous popes writings, but to the public statements of regional and national bishops conferences I ve heard it shrewdly suggested that Francis is giving himself political cover by letting his brother bishops make many of his controversial points for him, but the effect is less the scholar or politician covering hi [...]


    4. An interesting book Most of the attention on this book right now is about climate change and the Pope declaring it is real, caused by humans and needs to be dealt with The discussion about climate change is only a small part of this book Treating the earth with dignity and treating the poor with dignity are really the main themes Selfish greed is bad while not calling out particular companies I can t help but think that both Monsanto with its stranglehold over seeds and Nestle with it s water bu [...]



    5. Funny how stirred up so many people got over this encyclical The Pope is teaching an ecology in radical departure from standard western Liberal orthodoxy It is a theological ecology it is a social ecology It is not anthropocentric, it is not Green ideology The weird thing is that it is not anything truly new, that is to say, anything in departure from Catholic tradition.I wonder how much of an effect it will have I doubt liberals who love paying lipservice to green ideology will step up to the c [...]


    6. Encyclical On Climate Change Inequality On Care for Our Common Home by Pope FrancisHis Holiness gives priority to our interconnectedness and mutual responsibility toward one another, as well as toward our common Earthly home viii He is asking us to reject the creed of market fundamentalism and to recognize that the system has levers Individual, institutions, and governments are all making choices, as we have the capacity to make different ones xxiv In this Encyclical is the heritage of St Franci [...]


    7. Despite media claims to the contrary, Laudato si is not really about global climate change Pope Francis does mention climate change along with many other maladies affecting our planet, but his true message runs deeper than a single environmental challenge or the politics that plague it.Pope Francis s encyclical addresses the moral dimensions of human activity in the context of a living Earth He urges us to remember our compassion for each other and for the planet on which we depend He invites us [...]


    8. I ve read a few papal encyclicals through the years, but none were as inspiring to me as this one Francis is an easy and engaging writer Benedict to craft intricate theological statements And John Paul paradoxically combined the writing talents of a poet and playwright with the sometimes obscure philosophical speculations of a phenomenologist Francis writing is both clearer and engaging to a wider readership.And what he writes is challenging and inspiring In many ways, there is nothing new here [...]


    9. Laudato Si s Chapter 2 The Gospel of Creation is really a short treatise considering the basis of sacred scripture and God inspired words from the Bible to help us better understand our role in our world.One of the things I love about Pope Francis is his immediate and forthright approach that there is no reason why religion cannot be a part of this conversation about preserving the environment, and not just on the basis of taking care of our fellow man, though that is there as well There is no d [...]


    10. Summary Pope Francis encyclical on the environment, advocating an integral ecology that links care for the creation with care for the poor, the quality of life in our cities, and a way of life emphasizing spiritual rather than material priorities.Encyclicals are circular letters from the Pope to the bishops of the Roman Catholic Church addressing important matters of church teaching The title of the encyclical is taken from the first two words of the encyclical in Latin This encyclical, on care [...]


    11. Note on the text all encyclicals are available on the Vatican website for free I downloaded the PDF and transferred it to my kindle This letter is addressed to all people, regardless of their political persuasions and spiritual beliefs, but it s sad that most of the people who will read this encyclical are already members of the Catholic, liberal choir The crux of Francis argument is the care for the other creatures of the world, especially but not solely people His argument is based on the comm [...]


    12. I understand that the Church and especially Pope Francis, taking his name from St Francis has to make a formal statement about the Church s social doctrine and this is the optimum time to say something about the pastoral care of our planet and its varied cultures and denizens, but I question the efficacy of disseminating this message in an encyclical.First of all, Laudato Si could use an edit It is at least twice as long as it needs to be I found it repetitive and tedious.Also, the Pope s messag [...]


    13. An amazing book, well written and with beautiful but direct language Pope Francis approaches the environmental issues of today from the perspective of a wise leader who sees that these problems do not stem from lack of science and technology but from a problem with the way we view ourselves and nature, and an emptiness that many of us feel because we are not properly connected to community and each other He criticizes the technocratic ideology as being narrow minded and as seeing nature and huma [...]


    14. Quanti subiranno le conseguenze che noi tentiamo di dissimulare, ricorderanno questa mancanza di coscienza e di responsabilit.Papa Francesco, che non cessa mai di stupire, riesce con questa Enciclica a rivolgersi con forza non solo ai credenti, ma a tutti gli uomini di buona volont che condividono questa nostra casa comune L autore fornisce infatti un analisi attenta, precisa e illuminata della situazione attuale, delle sue cause quelle profonde e delle possibili vie per le quali incamminarsi pe [...]


    15. Pienso que como ha sido con Rerum Novarum esto es uno de los documentos en que la Iglesia pone su posicion acerca de como abordar un problema del mundo moderno con una visi n crist.No se puede sostener que las ciencias emp ricas explican completamente la vida, el entramado de todas las criaturas y el conjunto de la realidad Eso ser a sobrepasar indebidamente sus confines metodol gicos limitados Si se reflexiona con ese marco cerrado, desaparecen la sensibilidad est tica, la poes a, y aun la capa [...]


    16. Given that this encyclical is now fairly old news, as far as news goes these days, I will keep my comments on it brief As most are already aware, this is Pope Francis s encyclical letter on the environment which generated some controversy when it was first released Having now finally read it in full, I have to express my surprise at the controversy Far from being anything altogether innovative as I was expecting Francis instead recapitulates 2000 years of Christian thought on the relationship be [...]


    17. Makes one think about relationship with our planet and our use and abuse of it Interesting view on economy, especially thinking about a different take on economy, not just growth and gain at the expense of the planet and of people Of course there is a linking between Christianity and responsibility to care for the gifts God has given us, but non Christians would benefit from hearing the message of this pope as well.


    18. This papal document was courageous, challenging and quite current I really appreciated its accessibility Addressed to all people about an issue concerning all people, it did not get bogged down in ecclesial language or rely solely on Scripture and moral theology Rather it drew on the biological, social, political and earth sciences.




    19. Although I am not now nor have ever been Catholic, I have found great inspiration in and appreciation for the ministry of Pope Francis This encyclical deepened my appreciation The Holy Father issued a timely and moving call for people of good will everywhere to recognize the interdependence of all life on this earth I cannot agree with him on all points, but the general message is one to which we need to hearken.


    20. Beautifully, lovingly written book to all of humanity, not just the Catholics I m Presbyterian, and I loved it The Pope speaks movingly of the interconnectedness of all of us with the world and calls us to action both for the environment and for the disenfranchised Let s all listen.


    21. Not that I agree with every phrase, but it s intellectually satisfying to see a faith tradition pulling all these threads from contemporary philosophy as well as thousands of years of theology and practice.


    22. It has been a little over three months since Pope Francis released his encyclical Laudato si People have read it and misread it interpreted it and misinterpreted it, but it has been anything but ignored A big reason for this is because of the Francis effect, which is surprisingly still going fairly strong The liberal media still are trying to convince us that he is going to bring the Church into the 21st Century with women priests and accepting same sex unions To that I say, Never going to happe [...]


    23. Francis argument here is much subtle than one might gather from media synopses of it.First, he argues that technological development on the one hand, and the capitalist profit motive on the other, have an intrinsic logic which, when left unregulated and allowed to shape society and economy unreflectively and uncritically, have a dehumanizing and destructive effect on the social and natural world.Because of this, he argues that purely technological or economic measures will be unable resolve our [...]


    24. Ho letto con molta attenzione e curiosit l enciclica di Papa Francesco sulla cura della casa comune Attendevo da tempo una presa di posizione forte di fronte alle immense problematiche ambientali che gravano sul nostro pianeta da quella che la figura di riferimento spirituale per il 33% circa della popolazione mondiale, in grado di influenzare il pensiero e i comportamenti di moltissime persone Questa enciclica non destinata ai soli credenti ma a tutti gli uomini di buona volont che si preoccupa [...]


    25. All people in our world are fortunate to have a man like Pope Francis as a fellow citizen He was elected three years ago to a position of immense power, primarily spiritual, but also global From the beginning he has shown us a rare transparency as a public leader a simplicity honesty which demonstrate that he is genuinely a person of the global community, sharing equality with the highest born as well as with the most poverty stricken One sees this throughout his latest encyclical On Care for Ou [...]


    26. You want a holistic look at how to be fully caring for Mother Earth, Pope Francis gives us much guidance I love how caring for each other, especially the poor, is part of our need to sustain the world and its differences Each paragraph is numbered for easy reference You can download the PDF from the web.Here are some tips 1 Believe in a happy future, a better tomorrow Slow down, recover values and the true meaning of life Putting the brakes on unrestrained delusions of grandeur is not a call to [...]


    27. The long anticipated environmental encyclical from Pope Francis makes for wonderful and confronting reading, challenging contemporary society to change the way it approaches human life on the planet.It should be said at the outset that the encyclical is not just about the environment Francis is at pains, repeating it several times throughout the document, to point out that everything is connected, that caring for the planet also means caring for our brothers and sisters, and for ourselves This w [...]
