Laudato Si’

Laudato Si’

Humanity, along with all of creation, is on a critical journey. Climate change and environmental destruction are impacting everyone, most especially the poor.

In 2015 Pope Francis published Laudato Si’ – On Care for Our Common Home. This ground-breaking encyclical is addressed to “every single person living on this planet”. He urges us all to listen to “the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor”.

Trócaire is inspired by Laudato Si’ . Our work around the world eases the cries of both the Earth and the poor.

In Ireland, we work with parishes to translate its words into action.

Our ‘Living Laudato Si’ project’ encourages parishes to engage with these issues. We must reflect on what is happening to our common home. We must pray for our world and take action for a more sustainable future for all.

We also help Catholic institutions to divest their finances from the fossil fuel industry.

Pope Francis reminds us: “Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or secondary aspect of our Christian experience”.

Join us on this Laudato Si’ journey today.

Truly, much can be done!

Never Waste a Crisis

In 2020, Trócaire launched a twenty-minute documentary called Never Waste a Crisis. This documentary explores how certain governments are using the COVID-19 pandemic to crack down on minority groups and civil society space. The film also examines the crisis in the context of business and human rights; for example, the ongoing targeting of human rights and environmental activists and the fast-tracking of development initiatives which threaten the safety, security, and rights of local communities. This resource is designed to open up this documentary for parish groups and faith communities. It offers reflections from Laudato Si’ and Fratelli Tutti to help participants explore the issues raised in Never Waste a Crisis.
