I’m reading (yes, reading!) the ecology encyclical by Pope Francis and posting some thoughts along the way. I’ll add links to the new posts as I write them and publish them. As always, thanks for reading and peace be with you!

The Catholic Thing: The New Encyclical: Laudato Si by Robert Royal
Thomas L. McDonald’s live-tweets: @ThomasLMcDonald
A word of warning to the wise (though if you were wise, I don’t know why you’d be here): What I offer is not formal, theological, top mainstream-news-site-quality commentary. These are just things I’m noticing as I read. I have no scholarly pretensions or delusions. Not many, anyway. Not these days. I’m doing good to remember that there’s a new Pope, much less a new encyclical, and I just noticed that I still think of Francis as “the new Pope”.
Originally posted on June 18: I downloaded the new encyclical today and started reading it. I spent some time this morning on Twitter defending the Pope and the social and moral teachings of the Church. I decided now that, though I had planned to only write a brief post about it, I’m going to go through Laudato Si section by section and write what comes to me. Sometimes personal reflection, sometimes posting the full quote of something Pope Francis mentions, and we’ll see where this goes. I have almost no plan going forward (that pretty much sums up my life, too). As I write new entries and post them, I’ll add the links here.
