The safeguarding and promotion of ecclesial communion is a task of each member of the faithful, who finds in the Eucharist, as the sacrament of the Church's unity, an area of special concern. At the other extreme are those who view men and women and all their interventions as no more than a threat, jeopardizing the global ecosystem, and consequently the presence of human beings on the planet should be reduced and all forms of intervention prohibited. The problem is aggravated by a model of development based on the intensive use of fossil fuels, which is at the heart of the worldwide energy system. At the dawn of this third millennium, we, the children of the Church, are called to undertake with renewed enthusiasm the journey of Christian living. This deposit of faith our Divine Redeemer has given for authentic interpretation not to each of the faithful, not even to theologians, but only to the Teaching Authority of the Church. When the foundations of social life are corroded, what ensues are battles over conflicting interests, new forms of violence and brutality, and obstacles to the growth of a genuine culture of care for the environment.
We believe in the autonomy of science. In this universe, shaped by open and intercommunicating systems, we can discern countless forms of relationship and participation. Technological specialization makes it difficult to see the larger picture: The fragmentation of knowledge proves helpful for concrete applications, but it often leads to a gradual loss of appreciation for the whole, for the relationships between things, and for the broader horizon, which then becomes irrelevant. Here is the Church's treasure, the heart of the world, the pledge of the fulfilment for which each man and woman, even unconsciously, yearns. This minister is a gift which the assembly receives through episcopal succession going back to the Apostles.
The climate is a common good, belonging to all and meant for all. In this way he gave humanity the chance of a new beginning. Be ye therefore also moved, I beseech you, considering that these wrongs are done unto you no less than unto us; and let every one lend his aid, as feeling that he is himself a sufferer, lest shortly ecclesiastical Canons, and the faith of the Church be corrupted. There are no frontiers or barriers, political or social, behind which we can hide, still less is there room for the globalization of indifference. We are free to apply our intelligence towards things evolving positively, or towards adding new ills, new causes of suffering and real setbacks.

The letter discusses how humility helps to overcome the ego, the need for interior peace, and how a balanced lifestyle united with a capacity for wonder can take us to a deeper understanding of life. The heathens were rejoicing to do this, for they abhor that day; and Gregory perhaps did but fulfil the commands of Eusebius and his fellows in forcing the Christians to mourn under the infliction of bonds.
First, he called for an end to the arms race and for radical disarmament. Thus he underlines that the problems that concern all can be solved only by all. While we were holding our assemblies in peace, as usual, and while the people were rejoicing in them, and advancing in godly conversation, and while Encyclical letter book fellow-ministers in Egypt, and the Thebais, and Libya, were in love and peace both with one another and with us; on a sudden the Prefect of Egypt puts forth a public letter, bearing the form of an edict, and declaring that one Gregory from Cappadocia was coming to be my successor from the court.
The developed countries ought to help pay this debt by significantly limiting their consumption of non-renewable energy and by assisting poorer countries to support policies and programmes of sustainable development.
This is one reason why, since ancient times, the commemoration of Mary has always been part of the Eucharistic celebrations of the Churches of East and West. However, many of these symptoms indicate that such effects will continue to worsen if we continue with current models of production and consumption.
Two officials presiding over separate bureaux still count it among their duties to aid the Holy Father in the drafting of his encyclical letters. Why should this document, addressed to all people of good will, include a chapter dealing with the convictions of believers?
Parishes are communities of the baptized who express and affirm their identity above all through the celebration of the Eucharistic Sacrifice. I do not want to write this Encyclical without turning to that attractive and compelling figure, whose name I took as my guide and inspiration when I was elected Bishop of Rome.
We can be silent witnesses to terrible injustices if we think that we can obtain significant benefits by making the rest of humanity, present and future, pay the extremely high costs of environmental deterioration.
Inequity affects not only individuals but entire countries; it compels us to consider an ethics of international relations. But this requires the presence of a presbyter, who alone is qualified to offer the Eucharist in persona Christi.
From the nature of the case encyclicals addressed to the bishops of the world are generally concerned with matters which affect the welfare of the Church at large. International negotiations cannot make significant progress due to positions taken by countries which place their national interests above the global common good.
For in that case it was but a single woman that was injured, and one Levite who suffered wrong; now the whole Church is injured, the priesthood insulted, and worst of all, piety is persecuted by impiety. A simple example is the increasing use and power of air-conditioning.
It is also manifest that the Church cannot be bound to every system of philosophy that has existed for a short space of time. The creating word expresses a free choice.
Second, he eliminated the former ban against Catholic dialogue and cooperation with socialists and communists by distinguishing between error itself and actual persons in error.
But you must not for this stand in awe of their iniquity, but on the contrary avenge: and show your indignation at this their unprecedented conduct against us. Praised be you, my Lord, through Sister Water, who is very useful and humble and precious and chaste.
But we know also that such new opinions can entice the incautious; and therefore we prefer to withstand the very beginnings rather than to administer the medicine after the disease has grown inveterate.
For believers, this becomes a question of fidelity to the Creator, since God created the world for everyone. At the other extreme are those who view men and women and all their interventions as no more than a threat, jeopardizing the global ecosystem, and consequently the presence of human beings on the planet should be reduced and all forms of intervention prohibited.
The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth. In the Eucharist the Church is completely united to Christ and his sacrifice, and makes her own the spirit of Mary.
It is foreseeable that, once certain resources have been depleted, the scene will be set for new wars, albeit under the guise of noble claims.
Its worst impact will probably be felt by developing countries in coming decades.Ultimately, Pope Francis challenges all people to praise and thank God for his glorious creation and to work together to safeguard her.
Laudato Si' will make an impact politically as well as upon the major environmental and economic debates of our time.
