It's World Environment Day!

Editor: June could almost be called ‘World Environment Month’ given the number of days designed to focus our attention on the environment: 5 June World Environment Day, 8 June World Oceans Day17 June World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought and 29 June International Day of the Tropics. Resources to mark each of these days can be found on their websites.

How fitting too that 18 June marks four years since the publication of *Laudato Si’,* Pope Francis’ ground breaking encyclical on caring for all creation.

In this issue of Mercy eNews (Issue #822, 5 June 2019), we bring stories of six of the many diverse actions being carried out in different Mercy groups, addressing degradation of Earth, one of the two, often intersecting theme areas that arose from MIRP.
