Congratulations on finishing our journey through Laudato Si!  We hope it has inspired discussion, a call to take action within your community, and much personal growth.  Thank you for joining us! 

Can’t get enough of Pope Francis? The journey with our Holy Father will continue at a later date as we begin sharing his new encyclical “The Joy of Love”, 'Amoris Laetitia’, one paragraph per day.  No need to re-subscribe, if you’re interested … just stay tuned!  (To unsubscribe, simply click the link at the bottom of this page.)

Finally, if you would like to share a brief reflection on how these daily passages from Pope Francis have impacted your faith journey, the editor of the Diocese of Joliet’s monthly magazine will be collecting comments for possible inclusion in Christ is our Hope.  Simply email Carlos Briceno, subject “Laudato Si,” at

Thank you and God bless,
The Diocese of Joliet’s offices of Lay Formation, Communications, and Information Technology
