First, I want to thank all the amazing teachers that I had. Period. Why? They taught me that before you delve deeply into the wisdom of any book, even Laudato Si', you must get to know the wielder(s) of the pen(s) that brought this green encyclical to life. Probe their imaginations, Find out the people, places, and events that influenced them., Explore what motivated them to pick up the pen - and why. If you do the wisdom held in the pages will speak even more clearly to you.
