Video Message to participants in the Laudato si' Inter-University Congress (1 to 4 September), 24.08.2021

The following is the text of the video message sent by the Holy Father Francis to the participants in the "Laudato si'" Inter-University Congress, organised by the National Inter-University Council (CIN), the Council of Rectors of Private Universities (CRUP) and the Argentine Episcopal Conference, to be held online from 1 to 4 September:


Video Message of the Holy Father

I greet the members of the Laudato si' Inter-University Congress, to take place from 1 to 4 September.

I hope that this effort will advance social awareness and consciousness for the care of our common home. The Encyclical Laudato si' is not only a "green" Encyclical, it is also a "social" Encyclical. I hope that this Congress will help its full scope and all its consequences to be seen. I wish you all the best, God bless you and do not forget to pray for me. Thank you.
