Laudato Si 202: Ecological Education and Spirituality

Earth from Apollo 8The encyclical letter Laudato Si is available here on the Vatican website. The final chapter, “Ecological Education And Spirituality” begins. What does the Holy Father mean by this? You’ll have to navigate the last 45 numbered sections to find out, won’t you?

202. Many things have to change course, but it is we human beings above all who need to change. We lack an awareness of our common origin, of our mutual belonging, and of a future to be shared with everyone. This basic awareness would enable the development of new convictions, attitudes and forms of life. A great cultural, spiritual and educational challenge stands before us, and it will demand that we set out on the long path of renewal.

What is Pope Francis asking? Seems straight-forward: conversion.
