Live Simply Tip of the Week Climate change affects our health, our homes, our heritage and our beautiful landscapes. Our community centres where we meet, our sports fields where we play, and our places of pilgrimage where we take time out. Climate change ruins the work we do to fight poverty. Pope Francis has taken a global lead. In his encyclical Laudato Si’ he calls on all of us to care for the world’s poorest people, for future generations and to care for the earth, our common home. This is an opportunity to think deeply, live wisely and love generously.  See https://cafod.org.uk/Pray/Laudato-Si-encyclical
