UnderstandingEvery Tuesday this year, since September 2015, we have released a new installment of the video series Understanding Laudato Si. The launch of this online and free series was a response to an overwhelming number of requests on the part of people around the United States who expressed interest in learning more about Pope Francis’s encyclical letter, but felt there were too few public resources available.

After three months, we’ve now reached the release of the penultimate video in the series: Episode 13 — “Things Must Change.” In this episode we look at the first four subsections of Chapter 6 of Laudato Si. Here we see Pope Francis’s call for real personal and communal change in lifestyle, the need for education that includes the transcendent as a goal, and the joy and peace that results from true ecological conversion. Stay tuned for next week’s final episode in the series!
