“Laudato si’ – el cuidado de la casa común: una conversión necesaria a la ecología humana” – is the title of the book published by the Spanish publishing house BAC and edited by Federico Lombardi and Fernando F. Sánchez Campos. It collects the proceedings of the International Symposium “Laudato Si’ – The care of the ‘common house’, a necessary conversion to human ecology”, focusing on the topic of sustainable development.
The Symposium was held from 29th November to 1st December 2017 in San José, Costa Rica, and it was promoted by the Joseph Ratzinger-Benedict XVI Vatican Foundation along with the Catholic University of Costa Rica.
The book recognizes the continuity between the teachings of Benedict XVI and Pope Francis. More than analysing ecological issues mentioned by the Pope in his encyclical Laudato si’ at a global level, this volume focuses on the effect created by the pontifical document in different social contexts.
