I recently spoke about Laudato si’ at a University in a Spanish-speaking country. In an effort to reach out to me and other Anglophones, the programme proclaimed the title to be “Laudato yes!” – an amusing play on “si” that means “you” in the Italian original and “yes” in Spanish. I suggest we let this happy linguistic coincidence enrich our attitude and even provide our slogan in the face of the great challenges for the human family everywhere and especially here in Canada: Laudato yes!
(Cardinal Peter K.A. Turkson)
