Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home | Pope Francis, Catholic Church

"The acceptance of our bodies as God's gift is vital for welcoming & accepting the entire world as a gift from the Father & our common home, whereas thinking that we enjoy absolute power over our own bodies turns, often subtly, into thinking that we enjoy absolute power over creation. Learning to accept our body, to care for it & respect its fullest meaning, is an essential element of any genuine human ecology."

"Developing the created world in a prudent way is the best way of caring for it, as this means that we ourselves become the instrument used by God to bring out the potential which he himself inscribed on things: 'The Lord created medicines out of the earth, and a sensible man will not despise them' (Sirach 38:4)."

Taking a free class at Church on #LaudatoSi this is great because the book is so dense and I'm excited to talk about it. Taking notes on what #PopeFrankie says!
