“The news that Francis’s remarkable encyclical is working its way down through the vast institutions of the Catholic Church is very welcome–and even better that it is lodging in the minds and hearts of young people.”-Bill Mckibben, Schumann Distinguished Scholar, Middlebury College, Vermont

“I just received a copy of a new book: Generation Laudato Si; Catholic Youth on Living Out an Ecological Spirituality – and I did not go to sleep until I had finished it! (Honestly, I have not stayed up late, enthralled by a book like this, in years!) It is amazing to read the words of such wonderful youth leaders and to learn what they are thinking – and how they are acting – to create a better world.”- Joe Gunn, Executive Director at Le Centre Oblat: A Voice for Justice

Generation Laudato Si’ is a remarkable labour of love and of hope!”-Pierre Charland, OFM, Minister Provincial, Franciscans of Canada
