Stories from the Animators
The work was hard, but I came to see the connections between the products that I use, fossil fuels, and the face of those harmed by environmental injustice and moral loss. One of my friends said it best, “I will never see the world as I did before.” I feel my fourth conversion coming on… I have become a Laudato Si’ Animator.
Last month, Kit stepped up her activism by becoming a Laudato Si’ Animator. During the six-week training, she connected with thousands of passionate Catholics around the world and learned about the root causes of the climate crisis, as well as the key themes of Laudato Si’.
I had been involved in the fight to save the environment since the late 1990s, fighting for mangroves around Mumbai’s shores. But hearing Pope Francis’ call to praise God with all creation provided a deeper meaning to this pursuit.

During the recent Season of Creation, the Colombia chapter of the Global Catholic Climate Movement had an idea: How can we more broadly share the life-changing message of Laudato Si’, one of integral ecology, caring for our common home, and uniting with our sisters and brothers across the world to work against the climate crisis?
I was not aware that God was leading me toward a new direction and preparing me for a new mission. It is only now, after putting the pieces together, that I understand and appreciate the big picture. I must say that I am in awe seeing myself in this beautiful picture, hand-crafted by God.

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’.
