On 4 October, the feast day of St Francis and conclusion of the Season of Creation, Pope Francis released "Laudate Deum" meaning “Praise God”, an ecology document intended to follow up on his 2015 encyclical, Laudato Si’, On Care for Our Common Home. This second document he believes is necessary because "our responses have not been adequate, while the world in which we live is collapsing and may be nearing the breaking point." He continues, "the impact of climate change will increasingly prejudice the lives and families of many persons. We will feel its effects in the areas of healthcare, sources of employment, access to resources, housing, forced migrations, etc."
