In his encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si, Pope Francis says that “Climate change is a global problem with grave implications. … It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day. Its worst impact will probably be felt by developing countries in coming decades.” Pope Francis also reminds Catholics in Laudato Si that caring for creation is an essential part of our faith, and he calls upon world leaders to work together to solve the climate crisis. Now is the time for Catholics to respond to the message of Pope Francis’s encyclical.
The Catholic Climate Covenant is collecting signatures for a petition urging President-elect Trump to honor the Paris Agreement. This agreement is the world’s best chance at addressing the climate crisis before it is too late. We hope you will take just a few minutes to sign the petition asking that we not withdraw from the agreement, and that you will consider sharing the petition with your Catholic friends, family, and neighbors. We also invite you to pray for President-elect Trump to be blessed with wisdom and compassion, so that he may come to demonstrate bold leadership by following Pope Francis’ lead on climate change.
