Vatican City, May 19, 2020 / 11:00 am MT (CNA).- The Vatican will on May 24 launch a year-long celebration of Pope Francis environmental encyclical Laudato si to mark its fifth anniversary.
The special Laudato si anniversary year is an initiative of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development and will include a wide range of events, starting with a global day of prayer and ending in the launch of multi-year sustainability action plans.
Five years from Pope Francis signing of the document, the encyclical appears ever more relevant, according to a statement from the dicastery.
It noted that the environmental encyclicals anniversary also falls in the midst of the global coronavirus outbreak, saying Laudato sis message is just as prophetic today as it was in 2015.
The encyclical can indeed provide the moral and spiritual compass for the journey to create a more caring, fraternal, peaceful and sustainable world, the Vatican department said.
The year will begin May 24, the day Laudato si was signed by Pope Francis, with a day of prayer for the earth and for humanity. A prayer was written for the occasion which people are being encouraged to say at noon anywhere in the world.
The integral development dicastery has also organized events in the week leading up to the anniversary, including several talks with the Global Catholic Climate Movement over the videoconferencing software Zoom, for Laudato si Week.

This Pope is a Marxist and he is not fit to lead the Church. Bergoglio is the antipope as communism and the evils it has produced could only be the work of Satan.
Bergoglio is not pope. He has excommunicated himself.
I think I’ll celebrate by taking a long road trip to the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in DC, or maybe even taking a flight to Rome to visit St. Peter’s!
So, it’s like a “Five Year Plan”? Stalin would be so proud! Lenin, too, I’m sure.
Imagine there’s no Francis . . .
It’s a good thing that God is so much smarter than I am, because I don’t have a clue what He is up to.
I’ve been reading through Lamentations every day since the Churches were locked. I have some really vague idea.
I know it’s for good. I don’t like it. I have a problem. But maybe I will accept purification and vicarious suffering more appropriately in the future.
I want to re-read Introduction to the Devout Life by Francis de Sales.
Souls, Francis. Remember? That’s what you are to save, not things of this world.
You aren’t doing it right.
