Setting the Stage: International Security and Just Transition

Climate change, sustainability, and international security are inextricably linked. Environmental and climate-related disasters threaten food and water security, drive conflict, and destabilize international security. Global conflict, in turn, threatens international action on climate change while also endangering the environment. A just transition to a more sustainable future must confront the threats that arise from cascading, long-term climate disruptions. In

Saturdays with the Saints: St. Francis and St. Augustine

Join us for the first of this Fall's 'Saturdays with the Saints' series which will focus on Saints Francis and Augustine, Saints of Laudato Si'.

Can saints who lived so long ago truly contribute to the solution of a modern problem? Pope Francis must think so, for he deliberately echoes St. Francis's Canticle of Brother Sun in the title and opening paragraph of "Laudato Si'," and the theology of St. Augustine is decisive for his call to care for our common home, "Sister Mother Earth." In a way, these two saints live again and anew for our time in this, Pope Francis's most important encyclical letter to date.…
