We currently have installation crews out in Charlotte installing two systems for the Charlotte Diocese , the headquarters for regional Catholic Churches.
This project is part of the “Laudoto Si” movement. Laudato Si is an encyclical of Pope Francis published in May 2015. It focuses on care for the natural environment and all people, as well as broader questions of the relationship between God, humans, and the Earth. The encyclical’s subtitle, “Care for Our Common Home,” reinforces these key themes.
The first words of Laudato Si’ are Italian and translate as “praise be to you.” They are part of a quotation from St. Francis of Assisi’s “Canticle of the Creatures” that opens the encyclical in which the saint praises God by meditating on the goodness of sun, wind, Earth, water, and other natural forces.
The choice of this passage to begin Laudato Si is a reminder of how people of faith should not only respect the Earth but also praise and honor God through their engagement with creation.
What does Laudato Si say about climate change?
Climate change is one of the most prominent topics associated with Laudato Si, both because the encyclical speaks in detail about the moral imperative to address it and because the threat of the climate crisis has grown only more severe since the encyclical’s publication.
