Pope Francis’ highly anticipated Encyclical Letter on the environment, Laudato Si' or “Praise be to you”, takes its title from Saint Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Sun.  In this document, the central question posed by the Holy Father is: "What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?" (no. 160). He adds, "Unless we struggle with these deeper issues, I do not believe that our concern for ecology will produce significant results." Indeed, with this Encyclical, Pope Francis wishes to “enter into dialogue with all people about our common home” and calls for an “ecological conversion”.

Pope Francis was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio on 17 December 1936 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a young man, he worked briefly as a chemical technician and nightclub bouncer before entering the Jesuits. He was ordained a priest in 1969, and from 1973 to 1979, was Argentina's Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus. He became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998, and was appointed a Cardinal in 2001. Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013, Bergoglio was named his successor on 13 March. He chose the name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. He is the first Jesuit Pope, the first Pope from the Americas, the first Pope from the Southern Hemisphere, and the first non-European Pope in over 1200 years. Pope Francis has been noted for his humility, his concern for the poor, and his commitment to dialogue as a way to build bridges between people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and faiths.
