Pope Francis’ Encyclical

Pope Francis  published  his encyclical on June 18, 2015.  Many  are watching to see how it might impact the United Nations’ December 2015  meeting in Paris that seeks to reach an agreement on an international climate change pact.

Pope Francis’ top stated goal for the encyclical is to encourage individuals, both inside and outside the Catholic Church, to fight climate change and influence the U.N.’s process.  Here is the link to the encyclical.
