Stories from the Animators
I was not fully attending to a true ecological conversion for conversion is integral, since it is a force that attends to all the dimensions of our life. It is true that I had begun with the spiritual, but the other necessary dimensions were missing: the human, the economic, and the political.
Laudato Si’ Animator training left a permanent mark on my life by helping me undergo my ecological conversion, which prompted me to involve my children and other young people in living Laudato Si’.
The Laudato Si’ Animators program has helped me widen my view of my relationship with creation, and I am seeing that perhaps I have a larger role to play in caring for creation. Perhaps it is time to pass on my love of creation to others. Perhaps I need to actively share my process of discovery, joy, and gratitude with those who are interested.
Małgorzata Zawilska of Poland follows Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ not only through her words but also by her actions.
Five years later, the moment Michael Downs first felt excited about Laudato Si’ still stands out to the director of justice and kinship at an Oakland, California, high school in the U.S.
Laudato Si’ has become so important to me. It changed my way of looking at the world because it showed me how much everything is connected and gave me a new hope for the future.

Thousands of people on six continents just like Zenna took action – or made plans to take action – earlier this year as they became Laudato Si’ Animators, champions for Catholic action on climate change.
Rodrigo Fadul of Brazil turned his personal reaction to Laudato Si’ into a community response earlier this year. Rodrigo felt moved by Pope Francis’ encyclical on climate change and ecology that calls on all people to take action against the climate crisis and care for creation.
Earlier this year, however, Patryk decided to commit to caring for creation like never before and became a Laudato Si’ Animator, a champion for Catholic action on climate change.
