Counting Down to a "Laudato" Launch

Looking for more from Pope Francis, but too busy to read an entire papal encyclical in one sitting?!  Want an easy way to set up Laudato Si' as a source for daily inspiration and meditation?

Starting on Sunday, November 1st, we will begin a journey through the most important document of Holy Father Francis’ pontificate, "On Care for our Common Home"—one paragraph per day.  It will be a chance to reflect on bite-sized selections, as the pope discusses a number of recurring themes:
“I will point to the intimate relationship between the poor and the fragility of the planet, the conviction that everything in the world is connected, the critique of new paradigms and forms of power derived from technology, the call to seek other ways of understanding the economy and progress, the value proper to each creature, the human meaning of ecology, the need for forthright and honest debate, the serious responsibility of international and local policy, the throwaway culture and the proposal of a new lifestyle. These questions will not be dealt with once and for all, but reframed and enriched again and again.” (LS, n. 16)
