Aleteia: What You Need to Know About the Pope's Encyclical Laudato Si'

Aleteia has a symposium online which you should consult for an even handed consideration of the pontiff's second encyclical. From Aleteia:

Reaction to Pope Francis’s encyclical letter Laudato Si’ (Praised Be), on care for our common home, is anything but "monolithic."

The encyclical, dated May 24 (Pentecost Sunday) and released June 18, has 246 paragraphs and six chapters, with themes such as “The human roots of the ecological crisis” and “Integral ecology.” It is giving critics much fodder for commentary and environmentalists much to rejoice about.

Aleteia solicited comment from several experts in academia, think tanks and the mission field.

They will be adding to the symposium as more comments are made.
