Catholic Culture reveals:
The Holy See Press Office has confirmed that Pope Francis’s second encyclical will be entitled Laudato Si (Praised Be), a reference to St. Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Sun.
The press office also announced the encyclical’s subtitle (“on the care of our common home”) and the names of those who will be presenting the encyclical at its June 18 release.
Joining Cardinal Peter Turkson, the president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, will be Orthodox Archbishop John Zizioulas of Pergamon, who will represent the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, and Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, the director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and chairman of the German Advisory Council on Global Change.
Hans Joachim Schellnhuber: This is the same 'scientist' who called for a maximum world population of 1 billion. He's said that, if global warming killed off most of the world's billions, 'in a very cynical way,' we would at least have achieved balance. He's predicted the Earth will soon explode at current population growth rates so they must be curbed, and he's warned German Chancellor Merkel about the greater need for 'lebensraum,' a term the Nazis once used for greater room to expand the master race
These are insidious causes and frightening statements to hear from one of the very few people selected advise the Vatican, and to present an encyclical from the Vicar of Christ.
