Sister Mother Earth: Franciscan Roots of the Laudato Si

published by Tau | Trade Paperback | 000 pages
$ 18.95

This book introduces us to the Franciscan vision of ecology which, in many respects, seems to have inspired the encyclical Laudato Si. It emphasizes the need to overcome the current throwaway culture, which fosters the Well-Having over Well-Being and breaks the ties that bind us to creatures. Francis of Assisi is a universal model for all those who seek to live in harmony with nature. The Franciscan school has formulated, in philosophical and theological terms, St. Francis’s intuitions, laying the foundations of a fraternal and cordial ecology. We can no longer regard ourselves as dominators or stewards but as brothers, joyfully responsible for the common home.
