CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis devoted his second encyclical, Laudato Si’ (2015), to care for our common home. Laudato Si’ Week commemorates the encyclical’s anniversary.

“Today, Laudato si’ Week begins,” Pope Francis said on May 21. “I thank the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development and the many participating organizations. And I invite every[one] to collaborate in the care of our common home. There is such a need to put our capabilities and creativity together!”

Booklets prepared by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development and the Stockholm Environment Institute were distributed on May 21 to pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square.
