Download and read online Praise Be to You Laudato Si in PDF and EPUB In his second encyclical, Praise Be to You, Pope Francis addresses every person living on this planet, inviting us to dialogue together about the urgent environmental challenges facing the earth -- our common home -- and how we can work together to protect its fragile resources. He challenges us to think of ecology not merely in terms of the environment, but in light of our fundamental relationships: with God, with ourselves, with others, and with the rest of creation.Caring for our common home involves what Pope Francis calls an ecological conversion. In other words, because taking care of the earth is intertwined with taking care of one another, our encounter with Jesus Christ should be evident in our relationship with the world around us. To Pope Francis this is not something secondary or optional; we are called to be protectors of the earth, and this is an essential part of loving our neighbor and living a life of goodness.Praise Be to You is a worldwide wake-up call to experience a deeper change of heart and a new way of life as together we shape the future of our planet.

Download and read online Protecting Our Common Sacred Home in PDF and EPUB This book has been written with the hope that it will help increase the effectiveness of the encyclical letter of Pope Francis, Laudato Si?: On the Care for Our Common Home. As the world increasingly grapples with the consequences of global warming and its resulting climate changes, the urgency of the crisis has become inescapable, despite continuing corporate-led efforts at fomenting doubt and denial. Then in June 2015, there occurred a powerful intervention into the discussion by Pope Francis. His encyclical, Laudato Si? [Praise Be to You], subtitled On Care for Our Common Home, called for swift action on climate change.' Almost simultaneously with the official publication of this encyclical, there was the biggest-ever conference of the movement known as process thought, based primarily on the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead. This conference discussed various ways in which process thought could be helpful with respect to the global environmental crisis, especially climate change. In this book David Ray Griffin undertakes to show why process thought'meaning process philosophy, theology, and social/economic thought? provides a natural and helpful context in which to expound and defend the ecological message in the pope's encyclical. In concise arguments, Griffin shows that the position of Whitehead-based process thought on climate change and related matters is remarkably similar to that Pope Francis in the encyclical. This similarity is important for two reasons. First, as process thought and the pope's encyclical come out of very different traditions, the similarity allows each to add credibility to the other. Second, process thought, which embodies a long-standing type of philosophical theology that is consistent with today's best science and has been growing in influence, can be used to support dimensions of the pope's encyclical that might be rejected by secular minds.
Download and read online The Care of Our Common Home by Pope Francis in PDF and EPUB Cardinal Bergoglio, Pope Francis, was chosen to lead the Roman Catholic Church in March 2013. He has been capturing the attention of billions of people worldwide because of his clear and consistent concern for people, especially the poor. His leadership style contrasts sharply with his two predecessors. On May 24, 2015 Pope Francis issued his first encyclical letter. "Laudato Si" (The Care of Our Common Home) addresses the environmental degradation of our earth. Humans are clearly responsible for most of this degradation including global warming, he says. Pope Francis earned a master's degree in chemistry before entering the seminary to prepare to be a Catholic priest. While his background is important for this letter, the letter is not about science. It is education about our common home and an appeal to all of us to reverse the damaging trend we are on. This trend can only lead to disaster, he says. Pope Francis' solution is grounded in faith but he urges dialogue among leaders of all religions, science, economy, politics, and others because the changes required are enormous. These changes involve moving from "extreme consumerism" to a more simple life. This book includes additional resources for the reader to expand his/her knowledge. It also has links to documents cited by Pope Francis and suggestions for group study. It also has a number of reflection questions in many places in the letter. This book can be used in many ways: 1) Individual reading and reflection. 2) Day of retreat for groups. 3) Parish staff studying and planning a course of action. 4) Diocesan study and reflection on an action plan.

Download and read online Die Machiavellis der Wissenschaft das Netzwerk des Leugnens in PDF and EPUB Ein ganz realer Thriller: Wie skrupellose Lobbyisten seriöse Forscher diffamierten und gezielt Falschinformationen in lancierten Medienkampagnen global verbreiteten. Der Plot ist hollywoodreif, die Geschichte so skandalträchtig wie bestürzend Eine Handvoll Forscher leugnet, manipuliert und diskreditiert anerkannte wissenschaftliche Tatsachen wie den Klimawandel oder den Zusammenhang zwischen dem Rauchen und gesundheitlichen Risiken. Doch Die Machiavellis der Wissenschaft (im Original Merchants of Doubt) ist kein fiktiver Roman, sondern berichtet von der Realität. In den USA sorgte das Buch von Naomi Oreskes und Erik M. Conway für Furore und wurde zum Bestseller. Kein Wunder, die Geschichte, die sie erzählen, ist schließlich unglaublich – es ist die Geschichte über den Kampf gegen Fakten und über den Handel mit dem Zweifel, über die Manipulation der Medien und die Diffamierung Einzelner. Und sie geht uns alle an. Schließlich lehnten die USA als einzige Industrienation die Ratifizierung des Kyoto–Protokolls ab und verhinderten so wichtige Schritte des Klimaschutzes. Ein Lehrstück über die Macht der Industrielobby und ihre Handlanger aus Politik und Wissenschaft und ein Lehrstück darüber, wie erschreckend einfach es möglich ist, mit unlauteren Absichten selbst seriöse Medien zu beeinflussen und mit nachweislich falschen Informationen zu »füttern«.
