50 slides featuring lovely pictures and graphics covering the major lines of thought in Laudato Si'
Pope Francis' new encyclical on caring for our common home is a wonderful document filled with rich and powerful theology. But it is about 40,000 words long and may be a daunting read for some.
We have crafted this gorgeous PowerPoint presentation with related talking points to help you share Pope Francis' message with your people and lead them to action. Laudato Si' is really a call to action for our times, asking us what kind of world and society we want to pass on to future generations.
These slides are organized into an overview and five additional sections. Each section concludes with a slide with reflection questions, to help you lead a discussion.
Your full talking points are provided in a separate Word or PDF file, as well as in the PowerPoint file's speaker notes. Almost every point references a specific section in the encyclical, so you can follow up on details.
This pairs perfectly with our Reading Guide to the encyclical. See below for more information on that.
