In the apostolic exhortation Laudate Deum, a follow-up to his 2015 encyclical Laudato Si': On the Care of Our Common Home, Pope Francis expresses hope that societies around the world will change their lifestyles and intensify grassroots activities aimed at reducing the negative human impact on the natural environment, to prevent even more tragic damage to the Earth. The main goal of Laudate Deum is to call once again on all people of goodwill to care for the poor and for the Earth.
