Stories from the Animators
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.
We set out to create a Laudato Si’ Circle after celebrating Earth Day in 2019. As Laudato Si’ Animators, we saw the need to start with something.
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.
