In the first encyclical devoted entirely to the environment, Pope Francis addresses our human ecology in On The Care For Our Common Home. He addresses "every living person on this planet" in hopes of opening a diaglgue about our common home, the earth. Pope Francis challenges individuals, corporations, and governments to ask how we can claim to be building a better future when we are not considering the environment. In this context, he draws attention to the poor "who share an intimate relationship with the fragility of earth".

He first reviews the present ecological crises. Then he presents ethical and spiritual principles from our Judeo-Christian roots that are relevant to the topic and which he feels should be part of the conversation. He invites everyone to look at the distressed state of "our Mother" and to look at how we can all work together in "building our common house".
