NatuRedux - Papa Francisco's encyclical letter 'laudato Si'
- a plan for humanity
Papa Francisco and I
The Popes letter addressed to every person living on earth is enlightening in it's portrayal of the truth.
OF THE HOLY FATHER FRANCIS
ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME
The encyclical letter 'Laudato Si' perfectly sums up the essence of my personal long term feelings on the absoluteness of nature and shares all of our concerns as human beings.
Much of what I think and I write about the behavior of our species syncs with Papa Francesco's thoughts.
The Popes insight transcends most current human comprehension of the past, present and future of our species.
I was born catholic but have not been a worshiper for the past 50 years.
Still until today I've always considered myself spiritual when it comes to common human goodness and common sense. All religions in some way acknowledge the significance of nature which is intertwined with all life on the planet.
The Popes thinking is nothing more than an acutely objective, open minded and clear eyed human view of what exists today.
the Pope said his letter is addressed to "every person living on this planet."
The messages contained in Laudato Si are universal, simple and speak to the truth about the importance of the world that surrounds us and allows us to live.
Therefore every single human being on earth who is concerned about the evolution of our species must read the Popes letter and then read it again and again.
My personally contributed excerpts are my views for setting and clarifying each of our goals as human beings.
Each individual reading Laudato Si may derive their own personal meaning from what they've read since all knowledge is multi dimensional and without boundaries.
Within this post I have attempted to isolate portions of 'LAUDATO SI’ and share my personal thoughts.
As Pope Francis would say and has written "Praised be to us all!"
