The Promise of Laudato Si' for Integral Ecology by Mary Evelyn Tucker

May 31, 2018

 

On Saturday, April 21, Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker gave the keynote address at a conference held at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois entitled Our Sacred Earth, Our Common Home. Dr. Tucker is a Senior Lecturer and Research Scholar at Yale University where she has appointments in the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies as well as the Divinity School and the Department of Religious Studies.

 

Participants were inspired by Dr. Tucker’s enthusiasm as she shared her appreciation of  papal encyclical Laudato Si’.  She helped us to wake up to its importance in the Catholic tradition of social encyclicals as well as its worldwide influence and impact beyond Catholicism.  Being a leader in the emerging field of Religion and Ecology, she was able to unite the two as she led us through the content of the document. Here is the You Tube of the presentation:
