The last chapter of Pope Francis’ encyclical on creation, entitled Laudato Si: On Care of Our Common Home, invites us to an integrated and transforming eco-spirituality. Franciscan Spirituality, Creation Spirituality and Evolutionary Spirituality have encouraged us to enter into relationship with all creation. During this one day retreat, we will look at the invitation from Pope Francis and see how all four frameworks fit today deepening our prayer and action. The call is for transformation at a level that demands of us a new lifestyle, a passionate concern for the protection of our world, and a spirituality marked by moderation and the capacity to be happy with little.
