Mit großer Spannung wurde sie erwartet, auch von Nicht-Katholiken: Die Umwelt-Enzyklika von Papst Franziskus nimmt die heute entscheidenden Themen in den Blick; es geht um die geht um soziale, ökologische und politische Zusammenhänge. Wohl selten war ein päpstliches Schreiben so aktuell und brisant und vor allem relevant für alle Gesellschaftsschichten und Menschen weltweit. Mit „Laudato si“ beweist Franziskus, dass die Kirche nach wie vor eine unverzichtbare Stimme im Diskurs zur Gestaltung der modernen Welt ist. Wer verstehen will, wie Papst und Kirche die großen Herausforderungen unserer Zeit bestehen wollen, kommt an diesem Werk nicht vorbei. Ein Muss für jeden, der an den drängenden Fragen unserer Zeit interessiert ist.

The earth is the common home of humanity. It is a gift from God. Yet man’s abuse of freedom threatens that home. In his encyclicalPraise Be to You (Laudato Si’), Pope Francis challenges all people to praise God for his glorious creation and to work to safeguard her. The encyclical letter takes its name from St. Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Creatures, which depicts creation as “a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us”. “This sister”, Pope Francis declares, “now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her”. He calls for an “integral ecology” based on what Pope St John Paul called an “ecological conversion”—a moral transformation linking the proper response to God for the gift of his creation to concern for justice, especially for the poor. He challenges people to understand ecology in terms of the right ordering of the fundamental relationships of the human person: with God, oneself, other people, and the rest of creation. Francis examines such ecological concerns as pollution, waste, and what he calls “the throwaway culture”. Climate, he insists, is a common good to be protected. He explores the proper use of natural resources and notions such as sustainability from a Judeo-Christian perspective. The loss of biodiversity due to human activities, decline in the quality of life for many people, global inequality of resources, as well as concerns over consumerism and excessive individualism also threaten the good order of creation, writes Pope Francis. While valuing technology and invnovation, he rejects efforts to repudiate the natural order, including the moral law inscribed in human nature or to rely simply on science to solve ecological problems. Moral and spiritual resources are crucial, including openness to God’s purpose for the world. Expounding the biblical tradition regarding creation and redemption in Christ, Francis stresses man’s subordination to God’s plan and the universal communion of all creation. “Dominion”, he maintains, means “responsible stewardship” rather than exploitation. He rejects treating creation as if it were “divine” and insists on the primacy of the human person in creation. He also explores the roots of the ecological crisis in man’s abuse of technology, his self-centeredness, and the rise of practical relativism. Without rejecting political changes, he implores people to change their hearts and their ways of life. Popes Benedict XVI, St John Paul II, and Blessed Paul VI addressed key themes regarding stewardship of God’s creation and justice in the world. But Pope Francis is the first to devote an entire encyclical to the subject.

This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the spiritual, moral and practical themes of Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si'. Leading theologians, ethicists, scientists and economists provide accessible overviews of the encyclical's major teachings, the science it engages and the policies required to address the climate crisis. Laudato Si' was a major milestone in the Catholic Church's teaching on ecology and the environment. While it received global praise as a challenge for courageous action at the Paris Climate Talks, its importance goes far beyond one act of advocacy. The encyclical modeled a compelling, public engagement between theology and science. Pope Francis offered both a moral and spiritual response to the climate and environmental crises, and a renewed interpretation of major Catholic doctrines to illuminate our ecological connection with the rest of creation. Aimed at an undergraduate audience, this book provides a reliable introduction to the major themes of Laudato Si' such as: - a theology of Creation that embraces the insights of contemporary science - a renewed understanding of the human person in relationship to the rest of creation - a spiritual vision of love for all creation - the necessary connection between Christian solidarity with the poor and concern for the environment - it introduces readers to the social encyclical tradition from which Laudato Si' both draws and develops. The additional materials available through Bloomsbury's website include: - powerpoint slides for science chapters - video-mini lectures to supplement the chapters - learning assignments keyed to help students engage with major points - links to online resources relevant to the encyclical and to the environmental crises

Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’ is a game-changing document for the life of the Church and the ecological health of this planet. A Catholic vision is deficient if it does not include the earth and its life-forms. Loving one’s neighbour must include loving the planetary neighbourhood in which all live. For its part, the ‘integral ecology’ on which the Pope insists must include the dimensions of mind and heart, science and art, faith and the whole spiritual life of culture. Here, the great theological themes animating the Catholic vision, play their part as ever-renewable resources: the Creator and the gift of creation,, the incarnation of the Word amongst us, the inexhaustible life of the Trinity itself, the Eucharist as communion with Christ in the here and now of earthly life, just as ‘Sister Death’ must be given her place for the sake of ecological and eschatological realism. Integral ecology and Catholic vision are two sides of the conversion of mind and heart necessary to promote the communion of life now, and in the world to come.

Moderne Krisen, die aus Klimaerwärmung, Belastung der «Biosphäre», Zerstörung der Artenvielfalt, der Vermassung und Vereinsamung des Menschen erwachsen, erklären den Rekurs auf das alternative Lebensmodell des mittelalterlichen «Aussteigers» Franz von Assisi. Sein Cantico delle creature ist ein Hymnus auf die Schönheit, den Eigenwert und die Ganzheitlichkeit der Schöpfung: «Laudato si, mi Signore, per sora nostra matre terra (Gelobt seist du, mein Herr, für unsere Schwester Mutter Erde)». Zum ersten Mal in der abendländischen Literatur wird die Umwelt zur Mitwelt. Die kontextuelle Spiegelung des «Sonnengesangs» in den Künsten, den Naturwissenschaften, der Theologie und der populären Kultur ist Thema dieses Berichtes. Durch Bereitstellung und Sichtung gleichnishafter Entwürfe gegen Umwelt- und Identitätskrisen, gegen Macht- und Besitzdenken, gegen Freud-, Fried- und Orientierungslosigkeit kann der Bedrohung der Schöpfung künstlerisch und - im Sinne einer höheren (ästhetischen) Logik - auch argumentativ begegnet werden. Wiedergegeben werden alle Bildserien zum «Sonnengesang», die eigens für das Symposion geschaffen wurden, wie auch der Gesamtzyklus des Càntic del Sol von Joan Miró.
