The Book
Twelve prominent Catholic leaders from various sectors and
ministries of the Australian church offer their perspectives on
Pope Francis’ encyclical on ecology and creation. The book offers
readers insights and challenges to what Pope Francis calls “the
greatest moral challenge of our time.”

Within these pages are inspiration and practical ideas for caring for
our Common Home, for family members and parishioners, Church,
business and Catholic agency leaders, young people, Catholic educators,
social service and pastoral care workers, people engaged in health and
aged care and those charged with the responsibilities of leadership and
governance.

Inspired by the words of Pope Francis, the authors write from their own
professional and personal perspective about how each of us is called to
protect the earth, dignify humanity and restore God’s gift of creation.
This book is an excellent tool with far reaching application for all those
who contribute to the various organisations, communities, parishes and
agencies of our Church.

Colloquiums
You are invited to come and participate in an opportunity to engage with Pope
Francis’ encyclical on ecology and creation and deepen your understanding of his
challenge for each of us to protect the earth, dignify humanity and restore God’s gift
of creation.

In 2015-2016, Catholic Mission, Catholic Earthcare Australia and Catholic
Religious Australia will host individual authors of the Francis Effect ІІ book
at public colloquiums across Australia.

The Pope places the environmental crisis as “the greatest moral
challenge of our time.” The Francis Effect II: Praised Be You - On
Care for our Common Home colloquiums will assist participants
to explore Pope Francis’ vision, offering inspiration and
practical ideas for caring for our Common Home – in our
lives, at work and in our community.
