Human Dignity and Solidarity

Laudato Si’ Action Platform



The Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, which has primary responsibility for promoting the Encyclical Letter Laudato Si’, On Care for Our Common Home, has created the Laudato Si’ Action Platform (LSAP) as a space for parishes to learn and grow together in making the teachings of the Encyclical come to life.

Why This Is Important
As Pope Francis states in Laudato Si’, “Caring for our brothers and sisters means caring for the home we share. This responsibility is ‘essential to a life of virtue.’” (LS 217)1

“Our faith dictates that we have to care about and for humankind and we can’t do that without caring for the earth, our common home. In short, we see the assault on the environment as a fundamental matter of right and wrong.” –Cardinal Blase Cupich, 2015
