Laudato Si’

Laudato Si’ is an encyclical by Pope Francis which means “Praise be to you”, to thank and praise God for his wondrous creation. The encyclical emphasizes the need for us to work together to safe guard his creation which is the Earth home that we share. It addresses several key concerns of our world today that affect our whole ecology which we are tightly integrated with.

God Invites Us Into Unceasing Conversation

Prayer is not introspection. It is not a scrupulous, inward-looking analysis of our own thoughts and feelings but it is a careful attentiveness to the Presence of Love personified inviting us to an encounter. Prayer is the presentation of our thoughts— reflective thoughts, as well as daydreams, and night dreams—to the One who receives them, sees them in the light of unconditional love, and responds to them with divine compassion. This context of thinking in the Presence, of conversation and dialogue with Love, is the joyful affirmation of our gentle Companion on the journey with God who knows our minds and hearts, our goodness and our beauty, our darkness and our light.

– Henri Nouwen

Laudato Si’ (con’t)

Pope Francis has highlighted the problem of “our throwaway culture of Consumerism”. Our daily consumption of food and items we buy far exceeds the need for our survival. As a result of many of the unused and unwanted goods simply gets discarded. The constant high demand and oversupply of goods put a strain on our resources needed to produce and discard these materials, further degrading our environment.

It is time to start rethinking our lifestyles, consuming less and promoting ecological awareness to the people around us as part of our duty and calling to protect God’s creation. Join us as CDM launches our Laudato Si’ initiative on 31st May 2019. Turn to page 3 for more details or visit http://www.divinemercy.sg/laudatosi for more information.
