Pope Francis' Encyclical
Not only does everybody need to read Pope Francis' encyclical, but all learned and interested parties need to study it's fine points, to make its words universally understandable, and allow his message to inform all our World's governments and citizens thereof.
You need not be of Catholic persuasion to embrace this Pope's encyclical. To me, a non Catholic deeply involved throughout my long life with the environment, I am honored to have lived long enough to experience a message for Planet sanity from this Pope. I'm sure big money is mounting a blistering response to his message since their lust is always to accumulate more money, with it, more power.
Each of us must not remain silent about the breadth of his message. Some of you, I bet, will ignore Pope Francis' words and may even want to disparage him as leader of over a million parishioners; but, so many more, hopefully the young, will embrace his warnings and with action will change the arc of history over our World.
