The latest issue (volume 54 no 4) of The Way has been published and is available now. Each issue has one article made freely available. This month’s is from Pedro Walpole: Do Not Be Afraid: Laudato Si’ and Integral Ecology
Writing from the perspective of Asia Pacific, Pedro Walpole sees in Laudato si’ a call to restore a sense of what is enough to human living, avoiding unsustainable over-consumption. One way to foster this is to deepen the bonds of solidarity between people living in different parts of the world. To live in this way will require a change of outlook that ultimately spirituality alone can promote and support.
Loyola University Chicago will host a day-long colloquium dedicated to exploring and reacting to Pope Francis’s encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si’, on Wednesday, September 9 at the University’s Lake Shore Campus. The event, “Caring for our Common Home: Conversations on Ecology and Justice,” precedes Pope Francis’s September visit to the United States and celebrates Loyola’s continued commitment to sustainability.
