In his role as primary teacher of the Church, Pope Francis has issued recently several important documents. Chief among them is Laudato Si’ (On Care for Our Common Home) and Fratelli Tutti (On Fraternity and Social Relationship). The talks in this short series will investigate some of the biblical grounding of the Holy Father’s thinking.
April 19 — Our attitude toward the rest of the natural world springs from our understanding of what it means to be a human being. (Gen 1:26-28; 3:5)
April 26 — At the very foundation of our creature hood, we are connected with all other Earth creatures (Gen 2:7, 9, 19, 22-23; 9:9-10; Hos 2:20)
May 3 — As Earth creatures, we are totally dependent on Earth, and in many ways, Earth is dependent on us (Hos 2:10-11; Exod 20:11 (Deut 5:15); Exod 23:10-11; Lev 25:1-4)
May 10 — “Who is my Neighbor?” (Luke 10:25-37)
