Conley on Laudato Si and Integral Econology

UFL member Fr. John Conley, S.J. recently wrote a piece for America magazine called, “An Elusive Integral Ecology.” Conley discusses the approach to the environment that influenced Pope Francis in writing his encyclical, Laudato Si, addressing the relationship between the economy and ecology and the non-economic components of the ecology that focuses on human relations.
