James Martin, another Jesuit, has summarized Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si.
He has developed ten points -
1. The spiritual perspective is now part of the discussion on the environment.
2. The poor are disproportionately affected by climate change.
3. Less is more.
4. Catholic social teaching now includes teaching on the environment.
5. Discussions about ecology can be grounded in the Bible and church tradition.
6. Everything is connected - including the economy.
7. Scientific research on the environment is to be praised and used.
8. Widespread indifference and selfishness worsen environmental problems.
9. Global dialogue and solidarity are needed.
10. A change of heart is required.
You can read the whole summary here.
Or better still, read the whole encyclical here.
And being the practical soul that he is, Francis offers some tips here.
