Universidad Francisco de Vitoria

La Universidad Francisco de Vitoria in Madrid will bring Spaniards together during Laudato Si’ Week with an online conference that will focus on the encyclical’s unifying message of caring for creation.

Pope Francis’ encyclical on climate change and ecology isn’t reserved for only one side of the political world, said Paulina Nuñez, community manager at the Regnum Christi university. She noted that Pope Francis calls on all people to study the document and help bring it to life.

“The proposal of Laudato Si’ is urgent . . .We all should be moved by it,” Nuñez said.

The university plans to host a one-hour conference titled “Creation and I, why do we care?” at 6 p.m. Madrid time on Sunday, 24 May, the final day of Laudato Si’ Week.

At noon local time that same day, Catholics around the world will pray in their homes, with small groups online, or wherever they feel most comfortable, creating a global wave of prayer around the world.

 La Universidad Francisco de Vitoria is a Regnum Christi school that works to build a community that seeks truth and goodness and, by their formation and leadership, promote the Christian transformation of society and culture.

Regnum Christi is an international Catholic movement open to all lay Catholics.
