In January, 2017, FAN executive director, Patrick Carolan was in Assisi, Italy meeting with the Steering Committee of the Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM). During this meeting, the strategic planning goals for GCCM were discussed and the group recommitted to its’ work in bringing the message of Laudato Si’ to life.
In the course of their time together and inspired by Laudato Si’, a few steering committee members wrote a new, contemporary version of the Beatitudes. Upon their return and sharing of this beautiful prayer with others, the staff created this video for use as a meditation.
We are proud to offer this resource to our members, friends, and networks. You can download a copy of the Contemporary Beatitudes, along with St. Francis’ Canticle of Creatures, by clicking this link.
