The Non-Populist Pope: A Pastor’s Take On Pope Francis’ New Encyclical (Part Two) — 2 Comments

  1. I want to thank you for writing this posting. It inspired me to take down from my bookshelf my copy of Laudato Si, which had been languishing up there unread these past 5 years. And am I ever glad that I did! What an amazing document. I practically destroyed my highlighter pens, what with all the underlining I did.

    I would love to point out that the sentence “[recent technological advances] have given those with the knowledge, and the economic resources to use them, an impressive dominance over the whole of humanity” in Paragraph 104, reminded me of a line in C.S. Lewis’ 1942 novel “That Hideous Strength”:

    “Man’s power over nature means the power of some men over other men with nature as the instrument.”
