This week is Catholic Schools week. Our theme for this year has been 'Our Common Home'. Today we learned about Laudato Si'. This is a letter that Pope Francis wrote to the world. Laudato Si' means 'Praise be to you'. Pope Francis reminds us that the earth is a gift from God for everyone, it is our common home. Pope Francis goes on to describe the terrible things that are happening to the earth. He reminds us that as Christians we are called to share God's love.
During Catholic schools week we will celebrate God's gift of the earth. Laudato Si' deals with many environmental issues including pollution, climate change, drought, loss of biodiversity and the decline in the quality of human life. Pope Francis is asking us to work together to create a better world for future generations and to take care of, respect and value our 'common home'.
Today we watched a video clip about Laudato Si' and we talked about it. Here is a link to the clip we watched:
