James Carroll reconsiders "Laudato Si'," Pope Francis's 2015 encyclical on climate change, in light of President Trump's withdrawal from the Paris accord.
It is clear that the president either has not yet read "Laudato Si'", or he simply disagrees with what the pontiff said.
The Vatican, which under Pope Francis' insistence has strongly backed the Paris climate change deal, would see a U.S. exit as a slap in the face and a "disaster for everyone," a senior official said on Thursday.
Si è molto scherzato ieri sui social network per questa fotografia del papa accanto a Trump e alle sue donne, moglie e figlia, entrambe bardate tipo famiglia Addams, mentre Trump quasi sghignazzava e Bergoglio pareva voler stare da un'altra parte. ...

Enel chiude 23 centrali e le riconsegna al territorio: un'occasione straordinaria per il paese di recuperare aree progettandone nuovi usi. Ma finora silenzio tombale! Con l'avvento di Francesco Starace alla guida di Enel (maggio 2014), la politica dell'ex monopolista elettrico ha subito una decisa sterzata. Il nuovo amministratore delegato, in una audizione al Senato nell'ottobre
Back in 1991, the late Richard John Neuhaus penned a now-famous op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, in which he argued that Pope John Paul II's latest social encyclical, Centesimus Annus, represented a decisive break with the past-a development of doctrine, even. The new encyclical, proclaimed Neuhaus, was nothing less than a "ringing endorsement of the market economy." He went on to argue that Catholics who defended democratic socialism or a "third way" between capitalism and socialism were in "serious error." He then wagged his finger at the US bishops' pastoral letter, Economic Justice for All, proclaiming it "unrepresentative of the Church's authorative teaching."
The subtitle of Pope Francis' stunning new encyclical, "'Laudato Si', On Care for Our Common Home," belies the preference of some that a pontiff not venture into economic matters-Jeb Bush, for instance. Etymologically, after all, economics is the discipline of man
La I Guerra Mondiale resta nella memoria come il primo incontro dell'umanità con l'assassinio industrializzato di massa. Nuove armi dell'era delle macchine hanno cancellato
On his first visit to the US, Pope Francis will highlight the challenges of poverty and sustainability. A related issue, he acknowledges, is population. So what does that mean for Catholic teaching?
Republicans love to flaunt their religion, but only if it conforms to their politics. Francis just made that harder
'Laudato Si'' comes from a non-European. What difference does this make?
Pope Francis reminds us that our relationship to the natural world is about love, not just goods and services
By JACK JENKINS & EMILY ATKIN, reviewing a draft of the coming papal letter on climate change: "The likely encyclical draft - entitled "Laudato Si" or "Praised Be," from a prayer by St. Francis of Assisi - directly addressed the old biblical claim that because God gave humanity "dominion" over the earth in Genesis, humanity...

By addressing the threat of climate change so forcefully, Pope Francis is likely to add momentum to the movement by big institutions to sell holdings tied to fossil fuels.
Nell'enciclica Laudato si', papa Francesco presenta una visione dell'ecologia che definisce più volte integrale. In cosa consiste l'integralità? Nel fatto che comprende le dimensioni interrelate dell'ambiente, dell'economia, della cultura, della società, considerando le conseguenze che i cambiamenti
Loose canon: Free-market capitalism makes no distinction between human beings' wants and needs. This is catastrophic for both the planet and our personal happiness alike
'Laudato si' is not only an example of the Magisterium's social teaching: it also represents the birth of a new literary genre among papal documents.
Despite many claiming they helped to draft Pope Francis' new encyclical, the final text cannot be attributed to any 'hidden' advisors, says a former Vatican official.
In his new encyclical on the environment, Pope Francis slams attacks against human life such as abortion, embryonic experimentation and population control - saying that respect for creation and human dignity go hand in hand.
