Reflection of Laudato Si': Pope Francis' Encyclical on the Environment
Seton Hall University
In 2009 Cardinal Turkson was nominated President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, which was created to “promote justice and peace in the world, in the light of the Gospel and of the social teaching of the Church.” He served as de facto point person for Pope Francis’ environmental encyclical "Laudato Si’," which Cardinal Turkson helped to write.
Cardinal Turkson presented his reflections on “Laudato Si'" to the Seton Hall community on February 15, 2016.
