The Earth is the Common Home
Commentary on the Encyclical "Praise You'" of the Holy Father Francis
A contribution to promote the knowledge and study of the encyclical letter LAUDATO SI’ of the Holy Father Francis on care for our common home not only in Catholic groups, but also in different fields and especially among environmental groups. Also it serves as an opportunity for the acquisition of some basic concepts or topics on ecology, which there are assumptions or recalled. It is ultimately an attempt to prevent some of the media’s promotion, with their short articles, superficial comments, ideas and considerations that Pope Francis did not mean to say, of ideals not in line with Christian spirituality or intending to pollute the encyclical’s message.
