Welcome to the Thomas More Center for Preaching and Prayer
We are anticipating the new encyclical of Pope Francis on the environment, which will focus on human relations. The National Catholic Reporter editorial (Jan 2, 2015) quotes the pope: "Respect for nature also calls for recognizing that human beings are a fundamental part of it. Along with an environmental ecology, there is also need of that human ecology which consists in respect for the person."
In writing this encyclical the Pope has consulted the Franciscan Order along with liberation theologian Leonardo Boff and other experts in the field.
