 Ecology and the relationships among God, creation, and humans arise in the creation accounts in Genesis 1 and 2 among other places (Psalm 8; Psalm 104). Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si’ brought the Catholic tradition of concern for creation to the attention of the world, and included significant engagement with scientific findings. The resources below provide information about ecology and environmental sciences, including Catholic resources that correlate science with Catholic teaching.
