Correspondence with Pope Francis
Last year Pope Francis wrote to the world with his encyclical “LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” – “Praise be to you, my Lord”, urging us to care for our home, the planet Earth, and all that it contained.
After we celebrated Laudato Si’ week last week with several initiatives designed to help us conserve energy and resources and make the most of our environment, Prep II decided to write back to the Pope with their messages.
Here are a selection of the letters sent:
Firstly , Bani writes, ‘Dear Pope Francis, at school we had Laudato Si’ Week. We had no paper day. Also, I will look after the world by turning the tap off and turning off lights. I will say a big thank you to God for our lovely world. God has done so much for us we should do something for Him. We could look after the world.’
Sophie writes, ‘At school we had Laudato Si’ Week. We had no electricity and a nature day. We could not use paper that day. On Thursday we went to Odds Farm to get fresh air. We fed the hungry animals. We picked up the dirty rubbish. We all wrote a promise about keeping our common home tidy’.
Esha followed this with, ‘Dear Pope Francis, at school we had Laudato Si’ Week. We had no paper day. We made a big heart of all our promises to look after God’s world. We had no electricity day. We picked up rubbish and we put it in the bin.’
Finally, Nicki wrote, ‘Dear Pope Francis, at school we had Laudato Si’ Week and we wrote a promise and my promise was not to waste paper when I am drawing and we had no paper day and we picked up rubbish. On Thursday we went to Odds Farm and I cared for my lovely world. At Odds Farm we fed the animals. Love from Nicola’.
Thank you to Prep II for your wonderful letters and your promises – you are inspiring!
