Laudate Deum - December 1st 2023

This is the final excerpt from Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation; COP28 began on November 30 in Dubai.

60. May those taking part in the Conference be strategists capable of considering the common good and the future of their children, more than the short-term interests of certain countries or businesses. In this way, may they demonstrate the nobility of politics and not its shame. 


Human nature can be short-sighted, focusing on self-interests rather than a future common good. “Christian conversion requires new thinking and new living, a continual change of mind and hearts as individuals and as community.” (YAS GD 51)
