Laudato Si and the Countryside: Caring for Our Common Rural Home (Summer 2015)

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 1.33.26 PMPope Francis’s  eco-encyclical, Laudato Si, has something to say to everyone. But in a particular way, it has implications for those who live and work closest with creation: rural people. In this issue, we unpack the encyclical as it relates to life in the countryside. Cardinal Peter Turkson shares a reflection on the Laudato Siagriculture connection, and we also feature the reactions of a diverse group of American ruralists. Other articles look at the importance of virtue in ecological stewardship and the need for a receptive heart.
